Our 2016 ornament depicts the Maguey that was the trademark used by Ethel Harris of San José Potteries. Harris was a dedicated preservationist and was "Park Manager" of Mission San José from 1938 to 1963. Active in the San Antonio Conservation Society, she also operated a pottery and tile business at San José and employed local artisans to make her famous tiles that can be seen all over San Antonio. Los Compadres office has relocated to the "Harris House" her former residence on the grounds of Mission San José. The house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Los Compadres is pleased to honor Harris for her preservation work and historic tiles with this ornament. Ornaments from previous years are available in limited quantities please contact the office at (210) 922-3218 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
