  • Jar (Tibor), probably 18th century
    Puebla
    Tin–enameled earthenware; H. 14 1/2 in. (36.8 cm), Diam. of base 5 3/4 in. (14.6 cm)
    Gift of Mrs. Robert W. de Forest, 1911 (11.87.36)

    The shape of this jar is Chinese-inspired, as are its lobed medallions, although the latter also reflect the Muslim taste that continued to echo in Spain and Mexico. The floral sprays and ornamental bands encircling the foot and neck persisted in Puebla ceramics into the nineteenth century.
