This is a beautiful, tall, hand-thrown and painted Mexican redware bean pot. 11" tall by 9" wide. Great color with some blue and black. Much of Mexico's redware comes from Michoacan. Because of its low temp. firing process, many of the vintage pieces have ware marks, which I believe give the piece character and authenticity. This piece has only a few small ware marks in the glaze. There is a little bit of paint splatter baked into the glaze from the original painter, but it blends in nicely with the piece. In Mexico they actually use these bean pots. You could also. Mexican women steam a little apple cider vinegar in the pot for 30 minutes and clean out before use. Beans are fantastic and only take about an hour. The holes on the top lid are for letting steam out during cooking. I would still take a lead test strip to make sure the glaze does not have lead, and use it only for display if the glaze does.
