    Hi, does anyone have a clue what this is used for? I don't think it is for incense because of the stove top. The words written on it are Turia Real (or Red) Sta Fu' all together, and then Guanajuato Cato below that. I believe Guanajuato is in Mexico. Then there is a picture on the other side and it says U.de Cato or Tato. So I think it is Mexican pottery but I have no idea what it is. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Michelle

      Hi, thanks that gives me somewhere to start, I can search Mate. I just posted this morning so maybe your friend didn't see it yet. It looks like a bong in a way but definitley not a bong. =:)
