Chemical analysis of leadglazed wares recovered from the mission and presidios of Alta California has revealed new information regarding their importation from Mexico as well as patterns demonstrating local manufacture at mission locations. More than 50 percent of the analyzed lead glazed pottery appears to have been made in one to three manufacturing centers in Mexico. This source or these sources have yet to be located. Tinopacified lead glazed pottery or mayólica has been determined to have been made in Puebla, Mexico, necessitating an overland route to the coast, most likely to San Blas, for transport into Alta California. Research findings are presented within the context of previous work on Spanish ceramics and an ongoing project of compositional characterization of pottery from the Colonial and Republican manufacturing centers of Mexico.
