Perfect for keeping cookies or candies on the kitchen counter, this lovely ceramic lidded decorative jar is handcrafted by Mexican artisan Topiltzin Castro in the Talavera style. The exterior is hand-painted in a chevron motif filled with vertical pinstripes in cerulean blue. In between each chevron row is a motif of cornflower blue teardrops interspersed with warm brown dots. The background is left unglazed, allowing the matte, natural ivory color of the ceramic to show through. The rims of the container and lid, as well as the lid's knob, are painted a warm brown.
