Vintage Mexican Ceramic Pottery Folk Art Charger Plate Tlaquepaque Josefina Arias. Artes Folklorico presents a vintage Mexican ceramic pottery charger or plate made by one of the most celebrated potters out of Tlaquepaque, Josefina Arias.
Her studio was in Tlaquepaque, Jalisco, Mexico. We date the charger to the 1930s. The artwork features a slice of early Mexican life. There is an hombre with a basket on his back, two burrows with loads on their backs, two houses, stylized cacti and trees as well as a quetzal bird flying overhead. There is a kaleidoscope of glaze colors.The background is a beautiful rich brown. Even the back features the brown glaze, a wire for hanging and a stamp that reads, Arias Made in Mexico. The piece is quite large measuring 18-inches in diameter. The charger is in very good condition with no breaks, cracks or chips. There are a couple of tiny glaze chips that are not really visible (see photographs). A museum quality find for anyone that collects vintage, old or antique Mexican ceramics, pottery, folk art, chargers, plates, platters or the wonderful pottery made by Josefina Arias.
