This item is a vintage red clay pottery oval bowl made in Mexico. This is a hand crafted and hand painted piece. The interior of the bowl has a stylized scene of a swan swimming on a pond with trees, plants and cactus. The pie-crust crimped edging is decorate with white painting. The base of bowl is stamped with "Mexico". The bowl is in very good vintage condition. As a hand crafted piece, there are natural irregularities that add to the style of the piece. I do not see any chips, cracks or repairs. The bowl is about 13" in length, 9 3/4" across the width and is about 2 3/4" deep. This is a wonderful addition to any collection or decor.
