Large vintage boat or ship by Candelario Medrano (1918-1986)

Santa Cruz de las Huertas, Jalisco


circa 1970-80

18" wide x 26" tall 

Large and colorful ceramic ship by Candelario Medrano.  Fun colors and composition.  In very good vintage condition with only signs of wear due to age.  See photos.  Signed on bottom.

Like most people in the village, Medrano (1918-1986)  first worked at making clay sewer pipes. As the adopted son of Julian Acero, the top ceramic toy maker in the village, it wasn't long before Medrano used the clay to create his whimsical, colorful pieces. They included toys and larger structures to house his figures such as apartment buildings, buses and boats.
