mexican flower pots - MEXICAN TALAVERA
MEXICAN TALAVERA Ceramic Flower Planter Pot 5" [Vibrant Hand Painted Colors]
MEXICAN TALAVERA Ceramic Flower Planter Pot 5" [Vibrant Hand Painted Colors]
Talavera is a type of majolica earthenware, a white and glazed type of ceramic. Although the Spaniards introduced this type of pottery, ironically the term Talavera is used much more in Mexico than in Talavera de la Reina, Spain. Each piece is a laborious affair between the artisan and carefully selected clay! Historically The color blue was to be used on the finest ceramic. This was so because the mineral pigments needed to produce this color were very expensive. The customer could then easily distinguish the quality of fine ceramic from one of lesser quality. Even though Spain introduced Talavera to MEXICO it was Mexican artistry and creativity that truly dressed TALAVERA. NOTE: Handmade items such as this are entirely one of a kind. Slight imperfections only confirms the originality and authenticity of the piece. Please check measurements to give you an idea of the actual size. Bright white spots are due to flash photography.

Indian or Mexican Tuberose (Rajnigandha)
Indian or Mexican Tuberose (Rajnigandha)
There is a famous Hindi film named for this flower. Rajnigandha is the flower and the movie. It is a classic 70s film. And I remember a scene from it where the long-haired heroine holds on to a bunch of these enchanted by their scent. I have also heard it called Nishigandha. So I am actually confused about what it really is. I bought a bunch of these tubers at the Pune flower show in february this year, and planted them soon after. I think I bought about four tubers _ two of the single flower plant and two of the double flower plant. So far only one of them has produced this spike with its terminal head of 'double' flowers. Unusually, the spike seems to have made its appearance at the beginning of the cold season here. The heavenly evening scent of these lovely miniature rose like flowers has to be smelled to be believed. I can only describe it as a heavy, lulling fragrance, if ever a scent can be heavy. It is a favourite at the florist. The double flower in the photo is Rs 15 per spike. But the simple single flowered version goes for Rs 3 a spike. So you can get a dozen of those and your rooms remain perfumed for about a week. After that add them to the compost heap. I just read that these flowers were a favourite of the Aztecs and they grow wild in Mexico. Nice to imagine the journey the plants made with the Conquistadors who plucked them from meadows teeming with these plants or got native Americans gardeners to give them pots of cultivated plants bred for scent and more showy blooms. These plants either wild or cultivated versions crossed the oceans and were brought back to the old world. Now, here we are in India thinking of the Rajnigandha as a typical Indian plant with all the cultural overtones that come with such labelling.
