|Type Name:||ABO POLYCHROME|
|Production Origin:||"probably" PUEBLA, MEXICO|
Thin, cream to buff, compact coarse earthenware paste without visible temper.
Opaque, off-white, reflective background tin enamel.
Polychrome design in yellow, green, orange and blue. Yellow and orange paints usually have a matte finish, while green and blue are underglaze and reflective.
Motif is a generalized floral design, consisting of clusters of balloon-like elements and lobe- like elements accented in black. Human and animal figures sometimes occur in the center of plates.
Rims are encircled by an orange band with one brown/black line above and two below.
|Comments:||Unlike the related Aranama Polychrome, there is a great deal of open white background space on Abo polychrome, and very little use of the geometric elements seen in Aranama Polychrome.|
