|Type Name:||SAN ELIZARIO POLYCHROME|
|Production Origin:||PUEBLA, MEXICO|
Creamy white to pale peach or buff paste.
Off-white or cream colored background enamel, with decoration in blue and black/brown.
Designs include a wide blue rim band edged at top and base in black or brown.
Blue lobe or dot-shaped pendant elements are suspended from the rim band, and short black lines detail the blue.
The centers of plates typically feature a sketchy long-legged wading bird in blue, with black line details. The bird is occasionally painted in green or light brown.
|Comments:||San Elizario Polychrome is clearly part of the Puebla Blue on White majolica tradition. It is very similar to Puebla Blue on White, Black Variant, and is distinguished primarily by its distinctive rim band treatment and central motif. It has been reported most frequently from the southwestern United States.|
