Wonderful majolica serving platter
I love this Majolica serving platter, it is the perfect sice for side dishes and the blue and white handpainted design is lovely. Highly recommended.
I gave this gift to my nephew for his wedding. He and his wife love to fish and entertain so this was the perfect gift for them. Plus it came beautifully and uniquely wrapped.
Beautiful piece of glass. Size is great for salads. Very happy with the purchase and appreciate the work of the glass artist.

Ceramic 13-Inch Serving Bowl in Blue and White, "Puebla Kaleidoscope"$77.99
Hand crafted in the style of skilled Talavera artisans, Pedro Tecayehuatl presents this exquisite floral ceramic serving bowl in various hues of blue and white.
Talavera is a distinctive art form brought to Mexico by artisans from Talavera de la Reina, Spain. The ceramic artisans of Puebla, Mexico then incorporated Chinese designs, thus creating the blue and oyster-white patterns traditionally associated with Talavera Poblana. Today there are also more "contemporary" designs that include yellow, green, orange, mauve, black and red.
National and international conventions require that a rigorous procedure be followed in the elaboration of authentic Talavera-style ceramics. Each individual piece will be slightly different, and therefore a unique work of art.
