Entertain with this cute entertainer. This "pleasingly plump" mariachi band musician is made from Mexican Talavera pottery and will certainly entertain your guests. He measures 8" tall and 5 1/2" diameter. See my store listings for more members of the mariachi orchestra. Check out my other items !

Talavera is a glazed pottery produced in Mexico, mostly in the region of Puebla (due to the quality of clay in that region). Talavera is the oldest tin glazed ceramic in the Americas. It is still manufactured using the same techniques as in the 16th century.
