Talavera Tile Coaster Set of 4
Talavera pottery is a form of Majolica pottery that came to Mexico by way of Spain and Northern Africa. The Moors introduced the geometric patterns to Spain during the 12th century and it was quickly adopted by craftsmen in Talavera de Reina in Castile, Spain who brought it to Mexico under the Spanish crown. The process of covering the base in white is the reason it’s called Majolica pottery (tin-glazed earthenware), and allows the colors to really stand out. These Talavera tile coasters are all made by hand. Modern screen printing allows the painters to make them accurate and consistent.
