These little handmade pots are a traditional Mexican craft. They are used for doll houses as well as for ofrendas or tables in celebration of Los Dias de los Muertos. Measuring about 1 inch in diameter and another little bit for the handle, these are shallow bowls that are hand formed, so, each is a bit different. There is a primitive glaze applied for the firing which makes these absolutely stunning in their simplicity and old-world look.
Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera created designs made of these mini pots on their kitchen walls. They were collectors of most, if not all, traditional Mexican crafts.
Three pots are shown for illustration of the variations (top and bottom).
