This 1930s Mexican Tlaquepaque Bandera REDWARE POTTERY CHOP PLATE w/ White Bird 13 1/4” Di Hand Painted is in Very Good Condition
This striking vintage plate has the characteristically red background while the bird is predominantly an off-white and the accents and trim are off-white and green. Bandera means "flag" in Spanish because it has the green, red, and white colors of the Mexican flag.
The plate is 13 1/4" in diameter. I can date it to the 1930s because of the particular stamped "MADE IN MEXICO" on the bottom.
It is in Very Good condition considering its age and the general fragility of this type of pottery. There is one chip on the rim – you can see it in the picture. It has no firing irregularities. Please look closely at our photos to get your best idea of condition. There are no repairs or cracks but there is one old chip on the top rim of the plate. See pictures as they are part of the description.
The plate comes from Jalisco State in Mexico, probably Tlaquepaque or possibly Tonala. Both are now suburbs of Guadalajara. They were separate villages in the 1930s. But both are known for their Bandera pottery.
I am unable to assure that any vintage high-glaze Mexican pottery is lead free. These pieces are now popular with collectors and for décor and not for serving of food. Would make a great tray for cocktail shaker and glasses!
