This piece of old pottery was made in Tonala Mexico which is near Guadalajara. The handled jug has a wide bottom and a narrow neck. A cork probably went in the opening to be used as a decanter but this would also make a nice accent candleholder. It has a dark brownish gray ground with a dark brown, dark green, black and subdued blue and green stylized floral design finish in a high glaze. On the bottom it appears to be marked; TONALA JAL MEXICO with a mark that maybe a signature and a number that appears to be 368.
It measures about 5 5/8” by about 4 ¼” in diameter at the widest. It is in very good condition with minimal wear and no damage. There are some manufacturing flaws. The edge of the flare near the top has a few places that were apparently chipped prior to finally glaze firing. I have shown this in the phots. It is a production flaw and not damage to the piece.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
