    Your bowl may be considerably older than "vintage". It looks very similar to other examples from the pre-columbian Chupicuaro culture, found in west Mexico. The red markings may be the remains of catalog numbers from a museum or private collection.





    Here is some additional information about the Chupicuaro culture -

    I do not know if this style of pottery is being reproduced by modern potters in Mexico, but yours has a genuinely old look.

    Yes, It could be! It is from a lot of very old NA and Mexican pots I bought about ten years ago. I didn't try selling it because of the damage and now I am going through boxes of old inventory in my garage and trying to figure out what what to do with them...
