Roybal, Tonita – Oval Shallow Bowl with Lightning Designs (1920’s)
This is a charming open bowl by Tonita Roybal, from the 1920’s. It is either a small plate or a small dish. It is oval and has a slight rim. The bowl is painted on the inside with a lightning and cloud pattern. The piece is polished which creates a strong contrast for the design. The bowl is signed on the back in the clay, “Tonita”. It is in very good condition with no cracks, restoration or repair. There are few tiny dings on the rim. Amazingly, the center of the piece is in excellent condition!
