Barro Negro Botija - #4848
A very good, rare early to mid 20th century Oaxcan barro negro 'botija' from San Bartolo Cayotepec - attributed to the Dona Rosa studio. This utilitarian bottle, double fired in a wood burning kiln, was manufactured for the storage, transport and fermentation of mezcal, an alcoholic beverage made from the fermented juice of the maguey plant. This botija is hand etched with subtle criss-cross motifs. The original cork stopper is intact. Displayed on a modern base.
Dimensions: Botija measures 16 inches high. Overall height, including the stand is 17.5 inches. Diameter is 13 inches at widest point.
Condition is excellent.
