Comentarios:
Mexico City White (Variety 1) is part of the Mexico City Fine ware majolica tradition that came into production around 1540. It can be distinguished from other sixteenth century plain white majolicas such as Sevilla White and Faenza White by its red paste color, off-white glaze color and its obvious imperfections. Only "Variety 1" of Mexico City White has been noted in circum-Caribbean collections, and only in contexts dating to after about 1575.
