Over the 15 years I had a brick and mortar presence in the Twin Cities, I used many vintage bowls and trays in the shop to display other items.  I received frequent requests to purchase the display pieces, whether they were bowls or tables or tapestry hangers. So, now that I no longer need them for display, I'm going to offer them for you to display your goodies at home or elsewhere! 

This is a vintage Tlaquepaque bowl that was likely picked up in Mexico by a tourist somewhere near Jalisco--either one of the resorts on the coast like Puerto Vallarta, or at a mercado somewhere close by. I used this bowl for many types of display over the years and it's sturdy, smooth on the inside and has those wonderful pinched and scalloped edges. I'm guessing it's older, probably from the 60's. There are no markings on it except the traditional image of cactus in blues, greens, yellow and terracotta. In excellent condition with no cracks or breaks or nicks. Painted on the inside. Oval shaped.
