The state of Jalisco, Mexico has a history that extends far back in the pre Hispanic period, but modern production is the result of techniques introduced by the Spanish during the colonial period. Today various types of traditional ceramics are still made, The two main ceramics centers are Tlaquepaque and Tonalá, with a wide variety of products such as cookware, plates, bowls, piggy banks and many types of figures including many animals and birds. I collected many of Tonala birds from the 1960s on but only have a few left.
I have several other Native Mexican Art items on Etsy
Many of my items are vintage or antique and I will note if there is something beyond normal wear.
