Talavera pottery was named after a Spanish town, Talavera de la Reina. Much of this pottery was decorated only in blue, but colors such as yellow, black, green, orange were also used. During the Colonial period the Spanish brought the pottery to  Mexico. the area of Puebla became the hub for production of this ceramic because of the availability of clay and the demand for tiles from the newly established churches in the area. Puebla became the "golden age" of Talavera pottery (from 1650 to 1750). The tradition called Talavera Poblanato distinguish it from the similarly named Talavera pottery of Spain. It is a mixture of Italian, Spanish influences.
