      Galván family potters of Tonalá. I believe the decorator is Angel Solis.

      Is the pitcher 11 1/2” tall? If so, I found an identical form (but decorated by, and signed Galván) dated ca. the 1960s-1980.

      Reference: Mexican Pottery of the 20th Century, by Amanda Thompson.

      A place to start your research anyway. Dating by form is dicey, but if you can find more info on the artist you might be able to narrow the production date down.

      Oops that reference should have included: Page 78.
