Sol y Luna Mexican hand-painted BATHROOM SINK
Mexican Talavera pottery bathroom sinks
This sun and moon pattern bathroom sink is a classic design. It has lovely rich colours and would make a bold statement in your bathroom.
Around 8 centuries ago, Arabs moved into North Africa, then into Europe. Their glazed designs on ceramics, known as Majolica, were made with pigments on raw or unfired glaze. Majolica was introduced in Mexico in the 1700s when Spanish monks brought over artisans from Talavera de La Reina in Spain. The Mexican craftsmen blended the Majolica process with their own interpretation resulting in their own art forms and colors. Their product became to be known as Talavera. The Talavera produced in certain workshops in Puebla is now officially designated, recognized and protected by the Government of Mexico.
Each of these artistic sinks are moulded and painted by hand, and may have slight variations which adds to their appeal. They are made of ceramic and fired twice: once before they are decorated, and a second time after they are glazed. Talavera colors and shine will not fade with proper care. We recommend NOT to use abrasive cleaners, as they "eat-up" the finish.
Pop-up strainers are available from retailers.
Measurements: 43cm x 53cm (includes 25mm lip) and 152mm depth
Each sink has 3 overflow holes
