Painted and Lacquered Pencil Holders

$ 30.00

Mexican lacquer is an example of a folk art that appears in several regions in Mexico and was most likely imported from Asia at some point in Mexico's history. These painted and  lacquered 6-sided pencil holders are special in that they are made in Olínala, Guerrero, a difficult place to get to. 

Traditional lacquer work is done by layering one color of laca onto the object, then allowing it to dry for a good period of time, layering another color, allowing to dry again. These have a traditional floral motif that fits with many traditional home decors.

The are all unique, please allow us to choose for you from our available stock. All are floral on black.
