Small Splashware Bowl

$ 15.00

This is small dulcera or candy bowl was made a while ago in Oaxaca, Mexico. This style is known as "splash ware." This small dish feathers terracotta and green in its designs and was likely glazed with lead based paints. Don't be afraid of it! You can eat dry foods from it, like candy, nuts, crackers and tortilla chips!  However, you should not store food on them in the refrigerator. It's in very good condition. There are 3 marks in the center where something else rested on it during the firing process, many years ago.
