$ 2,200.00

This is a large and detailed bowl by Susana Aguilar.  The piece is from the 1920s and it is highly polished and painted before it was fired. The bowl has a plant, rain and cloud design.  It is a very tightly painted design that encircles the entire shoulder of the bowl.  Below the band of designs are small plant patterns.  The design is a strong combination of detail and use of negative space to create imagery.  The shape of the bowl is also very classic for her work, with thin walls and a highly polished surface.  It is signed on the bottom, “Susana”. The bowl is in very good condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
