|Guadalupe Blue on white is part of the Valle Ware group common grade majolicas made in Mexico. Lister and Lister (1982) report that there are two examples of Guadalupe Blue on White in the Metropolitan Cathedral collection with other designs, one has a stylized pear-shaped palmette and the other having a coase copy of the Holy Monogram. The designs and execution on both pieces are crudely done.
