Talavera pottery bowl wanted

Posted by David on January 17, 2014, 4:10 pm

Greetings from cold Chicago,
My name is Dave Cugier and I recently visited your lovely town on the pacific ocean and was quite amazed at the lagoon and crocodiles. I purchased a round 4-6 inch blue rimmed talavera bowl on three little legs with a green crocodile painted in the center overlooking the water with an orange sun in the sky. The middle of the bowl also contained the writing La Manzanilla, (See Picture). I purchased this were there are vendors located outside on the shores of the lagoon. There were also many wooden segmented crocodiles being sold in the area. The vendors were just selling items from tables in the area.

Sadly the pottery broke on the return trip home and I have no way to get another one. Would someone be able to help me in locating an exact replacement? I could send the money upfront for the purchase of the bowl and shipping and for your inconvienence. I can't recall the price but it was very inexpensive. Another option may be if any one is traveling back to the United States around Chicago if they would bring it back with them I could pick it up from them and pay for it or you could mail it to me from the states when you return.

Any help that you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
