    After the Mexican wars of independence (1810–21), ceramicware in Puebla returned to the bold and free spirit of the earlier blue-and-white designs. Classically restrained bands of ornament exploded into a riot of stylized blooms in fiercely contrasting colors, a last flourish of this uniquely important Mexican contribution to the arts of the Americas.
