The pottery on display represents what once was a very popular Spanish tradition.

The pottery was made from clay extracted from the Tagus River in Spain. In this particular exhibit the blue and white pieces will stand out.

Talavera, in Toledo, Spain, was the most important ceramic production center in Spain during the Colonial period.
