Description: Please study the pics carefully. From my research, this is either a piece of early spanish majolica in very good condition, or a very, very good reproduction. It appears to be old, very old, except there are no chips and no excessive abrassion I can see. There are firing cracks, with the major one at about 6:30 on the rim. It does appear to be tin glazed, with period polychrome decoration. The 4 small redish dots or berries on the sprigs around the bottom appear to be slip and not glossy (maybe an iron red, over-glaze), above the glaze as do the black outlines. Hand painted.


Though I can't be sure, the bottom looks to be marked TALAVERA <some mark> and then ESPANA.
