KEWA POLYCHROME BOWL circa 1940


Much Kewa pottery looks like this. Big dough bowls, big enough to get both of your hands into to knead dough, and small chile bowls like this have been made since the 19th century. The small pieces are just scaled-down versions of the bigo ones. Like many Kewa chile bowls, this saw use, as evidenced by the "PE" initials painted in silver nail polish on its underbody. When the owner took this bowl to the potluck, she wanted it back.
