Roybal, Tonita – Small Plate with Rain & Cloud Designs (1920’s)
Tonita Roybal remains one of the great innovative names in San Ildefonso pottery. This is one of the few small pieces of her work we have had. It is a small plate that is polished on the front and painted on the edge with rain and cloud designs. It is fired to a near gunmetal coloration. The back of the plate is matte. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair. It is signed, “Tonita” in the clay on the back.
