Details

Perfect for storing small keepsakes or simply for decoration, this decorative box is designed by Mexican artisan Pedro Tecayehuatl. He works in the traditional style of Talavera handicrafts, hand-painting the ceramic box with colorful floral motifs. The lid opens to a single-compartment interior for storing small items and other accessories.

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.

"Unique and gorgeous"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

At first I didnt think I was going to be able to purchase this beauty because it appeared to be out of stock, but I checked the next day and bought it. It is absolutely gorgeous and so different than other items I have purchased. I have it sitting by my TV so am able to enjoy it all the time. (Im retired.) Thanks Novica!
