Cuernavaca Earthenware

This is a real photo postcard of arte popular (folk art) for sale in Cuernavaca, Mexico. The title Loza de Cuernavaca translates as  "earthenware Cuernavaca." The name of the photo studio, Yañez Fotografica, appears in the upper left hand corner. The only information that I could find about this studio was in a listing of some postcards that stated "these wonderful old photo postcards are of Cuernavaca by the famous Yanez Fotografica studio, which photographed Mexico from around 1900 until circa 1930."

The photo is printed on Agfa postcard photo paper. This back is different from the Agfa backs generally used in the United States. I only was able to find a couple of used/dated postcards with this style of back, 1930 and WWII era.
