Angel Santos, heart box 3" [sold]

[sold] Fine brunido, or burnished, clay boxes from master craftsman Angel Santos. Both heart-shaped, about 3" by 1.25", and both featuring finely rendered leaping rabbits. This work is signed with "Tonala Mexico and a Circle 'A'", which is the mark used for his 'utilitarian' line. (The nahual mark is reserved for his artisanal pieces.) But the lustrous surface, and fine decoration is just as excellent as anything produced by Angel Santos' small studio. Mexico.35
