A mesmeric geometric lebrillo from the Triana district in Seville, Spain.
Recognisable through the distinctive use of green, blue, white and yellow polychrome, this traditional Andalusian faience-ware dish dates from the first half of the 19th century.
At one time the terracotta lebrillo bowls would have been used to separate the entrails of slaughtered animals and also in food preparation.
Cracks were traditionally repaired by the 'lañador', who made them safe with iron staples.
Spanish - Early 19th Century.
