|Each of our Mexican talavera plate is unique and handcrafted. The handmade nature gives it a warm and rustic finish. The plates are made from clay dug out of the ground and fired to a temperature at which the clay undergoes chemical changes and becomes permanently hard. Then the plate is glazed and decorated by hand, and fired once again to give it its final and lively finish. Its physical characteristics make Mexican plates particularly attractive and distinctive.|
|Color, Size and Design Variation||Slight variations are expected for all Plates. For instance, size, color and design are all likely to vary due to the hand made process. Please note shades of color are seen differently on computer monitors and therefore customers should request a sample before making a final selection or purchase. Lot variation in size and color may be present from shipment to shipment. There is no guarantee that plates ordered as add-ons will match those from the original orders.|

In 1983, I had a complete set of dishes made in this pattern by Talavera Uriarte in Puebla. I have 12 place setting with the large dinner plate, salad plates, bowls, dessert dishes, demi-tasse, small tea cups, mugs, saucers for each set of cups, candle holders, ashtrays, cake dish on a pedestal, soup bowl, three canisters, tea pot, large serving dishes, pitcher, etc. I love my dishes and am so happy that invested in having them made. I highly recommend Talavera Uriarte. They shipped the items to Germany where I had gone to live and they were packed with the utmost care.
