5 Piece Jaguar Entertaining Serving Set with Parota Tray
Handcrafted Jaguar Clay Entertaining Serving Set with Parota Serving Tray Made in Jalisco, Mexico.
In Mexican pre-colonial cultures the jaguar was an emblem of power, war, and hunting. Today, indigenous cultures still use its symbolism in many daily objects and works of art. This 100% handcrafted entertaining serving tray’s bowls display two jaguar heads highly detailed and beautiful. Set includes three mini serving bowls with matching spoons made of premium grade clay and hand painted with unique designs. Bowls are mismatched in size, denoting their artisanal nature. The tray is hand carved from parota wood. Highly refined and sturdy, parota, or guanacaste, is a solid wood popular in Mexico for its unique changes in color that bring out wood’s beauty and for its sturdiness. Perfect to impress your guests when serving salsa or dips, or as a housewarming gift. All designs are one of a kind.
