This week I found an old ornament that reminds me of coloring books from the 70’s/early 80’s. It was marked .69 cents but it was a half off day so it ended up costing even less. On the back was marked Ceramica Del Convento Aracena.
I loved the little leaves and textured circles that were on the dress of this ornament. When I looked online for similar items there were a few on Etsy priced $10-$15 depending on the size and style.
This piece has a nice feel to it and is well made. The colors are so 70’s with the green and orange everywhere.
I have not been able to find out anymore history on the company but I did learn that these vintage pottery pieces come from Spain.
I haven’t decided yet if I will keep this one or not. Sometimes I tie little treats like this to my gift packages with a pretty bow I make by hand. It kind of reminds me of a gingerbread cookie with the color and shape of it.
Has anyone else come across this pottery while hunting vintage items?. I would love to know more about the history of this piece if you have. Happy vintage hunting everyone.
