Accordingly, where does Talavera pottery come from?
Talavera pottery (Spanish: Talavera poblana) is a Mexican and Spanish pottery tradition named after the Spanish Talavera de la Reina pottery, from Talavera de la Reina, in Spain. The Mexican pottery is a type of majolica (faience) or tin-glazed earthenware, with a white base glaze typical of the type.
Beside above, how can you tell real Talavera? Certified Talavera pieces bear the signature of the potter, the logo of the workshop and the special hologram that certifies the piece's authenticity. Only pieces from workshops that meet the standards are certified. Authentic Talavera is costly, as every piece is one of its kind and of excellent quality.
