Can things really be as simple as black and white? Well, this black and white Fantasia tri-leg fluted bowl is just that…simply stunning! This large deep bowl is a gorgeous example of Mexican Tlaquepaque pottery with its beautiful black and white colored glaze and hand painted Fantasia stylized Guerro Bird. The Fantasia style is tourist pottery from the Guadalajara area that has become extremely popular with collectors. Although this piece features a stylized bird you could just as easily find fantasized images of many other animals and flowers on other Fantasia design pieces with some even displaying highly stylized people. New pieces of this old design can be found but you can most often easily tell the difference by the smoothness of the clay. This piece is vintage early to mid-20th century, and it is comprised of gray clay and not the more typical terracotta. The mixture of the gray clay and the Fantasia stylized bird design indicates that it is most likely from the Guerrero or Tlaquepaque region. The intricate hand painted details begin in the bowl and stylized feathers wrap around the outer top edge. It has a gorgeous, glazed finish and a fluted rim with tri leg base that features holes in the bottom of the legs in case you want to hang it on the wall. It is strictly for décor purposes and not for food consumption, but it would look AMAZING on the wall or on a counter in your kitchen or as a centerpiece on your dining or coffee table. There really isn’t any room in your home that this fabulous bowl can’t go! We are totally in love with it here!! You should make it yours, before we change our minds!!
