Tonala Mexico Burnished Fantasia Vase Feathered Bird Design circa 1940
The background color is a brilliant red-orange and the rim is painted black. In some of the photos the base of the vase appears yellow, but that is just glare from light reflecting off the shiny surface. The background is all one color.
It is in very good condition with little surface wear and is clean on the inside. It is unmarked and stands 8.25" tall, is 6.25" wide at its widest, and has a 3.5" diameter opening.
The design is typical of the fantasia style on chargers and vases made in the 30s and 40s in Tonala, Mexico, a suburb of Guadalajara. .
Note: You can find much larger but similar vases pictured in CERAMICA MEXICAN POTTERY OF THE 20TH CENTURY by Amanda Thompson.
