This is a unique coiled bowl by Reycita. Probably made in the 1970s, a great black bear is sculpted onto the top of the piece. It could be an ashtray – or it actually looks like it could be a handle of a ladle! The whole piece is fully polished. Nicely shaped, it’s a wonderful, whimsical piece of traditional Santa Clara black ware. It makes me smile! Signed on the bottom RECITA COZEN SANTA CLARA

It is in excellent condition, with no repairs, restoration, chips, or cracks.
