Dating to the mid 20th century, from 1940-1960, burnished wares of this type were created in Tonala, Jalisco Mexico. Near the larger town of Guadalajara, small pueblos became known for the fine workmanship and charming motifs, with Tlaquepaque and Tonala being significant centers for exceptional pottery. This vase measures 8 3/4" high, and is 4 1/4" in diameter at the base. It is stamped "made in Mexico" in a cartouche, which is a typical mark. The background is a deep cobalt blue, with nice decoration in greens, grey, brown, rust, and cream, depicting two deer in a tropical landscape. In good condition, with a visible chip on the base, a spot of silver paint on the rim, and very minor rubs to glaze. The neck of the vase is not completely burnished, so some of the glaze at the base of the neck is matte. The interior of the neck is glazed in green, but not burnished, and the interior of the vase is unglazed.
