One of those things I aquired & would love to learn a bit about. I know nothing about this piece. It stands about 15in high & 15in wide. No markings at all, top is a bit smoother than the bottom - hand made, uneven firing w/ burn marks? Rawhide is hard but intact. There are a few fingerprints smudged inside the lip that appear to have occured durring the making. Any ideas would be wonderful & greatly appreciated.
Thanks Starrwalker

    Its a decorative piece, probably made in Mexico

    It is a contemporary piece, made by the Tarahumara, from the Copper Canyon region of Mexico. They are hand-made, fired in an outdoor pit fire, thus the "burn marks".
