I recently acquired this large covered vase at a local thrift store.  It is 15" tall (including the cover) and hand thrown. There is an undecipherable (at least to me) signature on the bottom. I've searched online for something similar and the closest I've come is Talavera so perhaps Mexico?  It seems to have a Christmas motif as the main element is Poinsettia & Holly.  I'm hoping someone will be able to decipher signature.  Any assistance will be appreciated.  Thanks.

The last word is MEX so it's Mexican. I can't read the rest but similar pieces online listed as Fiesta Brands Talavera Mexican. The flower in the middle is a Poinsettia

Hi NaomiM,
Thanks for the reply. I'd thought the flower was a Holly (looking at the leaves) but after reading your reply I think it's a Poinsettia surrounded Holly leaves. I've also figured out it should be called a Ginger Jar. When searching on Ginger Jar I get many more results but still no luck on the signature.
Regards,
Bill

The company probably employs a number of throwers and decorators. It might be a place name written in Spanish
