mexican talavera pottery switch outlet plates & covers

Updated on July 19, 2014

Fun Talavera Light Switch, Cable, & Outlet Covers

Talavera pottery is a very colorful and fun art-form and on my buying trips to Mexico I always find the light switch, cable, and outlet covers an irresistible buy, and as soon as I post them online or at my two stores they simply fly out of the shelf. I think the reason why is since these items will bring color and fun to any décor. They are very artistic and each piece is uniquely handcrafted by artists so they are items to be treasured. Below is a small paragraph that I wrote few years ago about talavera and have displayed together with a great selection of talavera items on my e-commerce site "Talavera is a type of Majorca pottery that originated in the Colonial Period in Mexico. This type of pottery is know for its beautiful glaze and its vivid color and pattern combinations. Here at Miximports we offer an incredible variety of talavera items such as light switch covers and outlet plates, wall décor, bowls, crosses and more."

Hope you have fun checking these out. Although many of these are pictures of items that have already been sold I do keep a great selection of talavera items available in my site and Ebay store on the regular basis, so be sure to check out each batch!
