This item is a red clay handcrafted bowl made in Mexico. It is hand painted with a geometric line pattern across the interior bowl. The handles are formed from the rim on two sides of the bowl. The interior and handles of the bowl are glazed. The outer bowl is not glazed except for drips of glaze running down from the bowl rim. The bowl measures about 9 1/2" across. The handles bring the measurement to about 11 1/4" across that area. The bowl stands about 2 3/4" in height.
This bowl is in good vintage condition. The rough texture of the bowl is due to the the handmade pottery style. There are a few use marks on the interior of the bowl and I find one small chip on the outer edge of the bowl.
This item should not be used for food serving. It is a wonderful addition to a collection or decor.
