Mexican Talavera ceramic is the result of a mixture of cultures over time. Initially, the Spaniards were influenced by Arabic pottery. They brought it with them to Mexico. The mixture of these cultures resulted in this beautiful ceramic art. This ceramic triple-toggle switch plate is a great present-time example of the exquisite beauty Mexican craftsmen put into each item they create.
The ceramic is fired at high temperatures to give it its hardness. Most of the Talavera ceramic items are first hand-painted with a white coat. The decoration is then drawn over the first coat of paint. You may find that it has some imperfections, due to its hand-made nature, but it is what makes it all the more unique. Because the switch plate is handcrafted and hand-painted, no two switch plates are the same! There may be small variations in size, weight and even the paintings.
This switch plate makes for a unique accent to any hacienda, country, or southwestern- style home. This particular design is multicolor. The predominant colors are orange, dark green and terracotta. They are painted over a white mesh background. The pattern on this switch plate is of a crown-like object. The bottom part is banded by dark green, orange and terracotta colors. The drawings on this switch plate will match the Marquesa Talavera Ceramic Sink.
It will fit any standard triple-toggle switch plate. If you want to delight somebody special with a unique handcrafted gift, this is what you are looking for!
