These have been sitting on top of my parents entertainment center for years. I am told it is old, but I would like to know how old. Maybe what tribe. No markings, as they are handmade and handpainted.

    i may be mistaken, but it looks like the kind of water jars you buy across the border in mexico.

    Could be, I was told they came from my grandparents 40+ years ago.

    My Mom & Dad have that and the paint is even identical. I know they bought a bunch of pottery back in the 1970's. The are very nice, I keep things because I like them!

    This is a Tonala water jug and cup - probably from the state of Jalisco in Mexico. They are very common. I have several of them.
