Vintage Ortega Church; Candelario Medrano Style; 22 1/2" tall


Peos Priced Item;   This church measures 7 1/2 wide" by 12"  deep and 22 1/2" tall.  The Ortega family has been important in the decorative drain pipes from Santa Cruz de Las Huertas, the same a Candelario Medrano.  I know that Candelario is credited with making the churches, kiosk, etc but the Ortega family also made the roosters, cars, buses and I believe this church was made by one on that family too.  The colorations are a little more strong than most Candelario pieces.. It is a guessing game except when there is direct provenance, as is the case for some of the pieces we are offering on the webpage.  This one does not come with that provenance..
