Found this really nice large 13" vase/jar at GW this afternoon. It's Mexican Talavera pottery.The design of Calla lilies on a blue background is beautiful. The base is marked Talavera- Castillo (artist)- Mexico and has a small tag with numbers and also some painted letters. Looks like "CMX" probably the artist's mark. They have many artists who make these pieces and this is a signature piece by Castillo. I found the artist and some Calla Lily pieces on their website but not this exact vase. Not sure how old it is either, most likely contemporary. -Mike-
