Purchase History:
Purchased (and promptly accidentally broken) by my Mother, embarrassed at finding nothing else to buy in a home at the pueblo with a sign out front advertising “pottery,” $8.00 (!). The high price (and prompt breakage) became a family joke. A mentally unstable homeless man I was feeding stole the piece from my home. (He also stole my car!)
