Tlaquepaque Cacti-Motif Tecomates / Set of Two

Tlaquepaque Cacti-Motif Tecomates / Set of Two


Such a unique pair! These '40s era hand-painted ceramic tecomate bowls with a cacti motif were made in the artisan village of Tlaquepaque, Jalisco.

The narrow rim of these vessels make them useful for storing dried goods (like seeds), and have been used since the earliest known pottery was developed in Mesoamerica. In the second millennium B.C, Tecomates are also thought to have been used for serving hot beverages such as chicha, cacao, or atole.
