This item is a vintage 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 trees, plants and cactus. The pie-crust crimped edging is decorate with brown accent painting. The bowl is in very good vintage condition. As a hand crafted piece, there are rustic natural irregularities that add to the style of the piece. I see one minor hairline crack and one small nick in the rim. The bowl is about 9 1/4" in length, 7 1/2" across the width and is about 1 3/4" deep. This is a wonderful addition to any collection or decor. I would guess this piece was made in the 1950's.
