A Spanish 20th century (circa 1925) Talavera charger in blue and white depicts a crane in a landscape. The pottery type Talavera takes its name from the Spanish town Talavera de la Reina the country’s pottery center. The decoration on these pottery has been influenced by the 8th century Moorish occupation of Spain. The industry however underwent its Golden Age in the 16th and 17th century, largely producing tiles for King Philip II of Spain (1527-1598).
