Tlaquepaque Fantasia Style Butterfly Pie Crust Bowl

These pieces were hand made in Tlaquepaque, Jalisco, Mexico, in the 1930's and 1940's. This redware bowl is 11" in diameter, and 4" tall. It has 14 pie crust points with blue glaze on the edge. The three feet are embossed leaves with green and black glaze. The rest of the exterior has the leaves embossed, but not colored. The interior is hand decorated in black and white(now yellowed) with flowers, vines, and leaves, with a butterfly in the center. The base has a Mexico black ink mark. This old piece has no cracks, but the 3/8" thick points, on the edge, do show wear with one having an interior chip. This is always the case with these old handmade, hand cut edges. These are much more scarce than the newer tourist pottery frequently offered. Do take a look, and put this under your Christmas tree.
