Lovely hand made and painted trinket dish from Fez, Morocco. A sophisticated black and white calligraphy pattern adorns this piece. Perfect for holding jewelry, salt, spices, shells, sand, etc. Signed by the artist, this small trinket dish also a hole in the base to allow for displaying on a wall.
Fez is famous for its distinctive pottery. Best made from white clay, Fez pottery is traditionally glazed in white and dark blue, with patterns of Arabic or geometric designs. Gadabout Goods discovered these select pieces at a colorful shop run by 2 brothers in the souk.
Each piece arrives to you carefully wrapped with handmade notes about its origin, passing on a personal connection and taking some anonymity out of the shopping experience.
Gadabout Goods’ second collection is from the ancient city of Fez, in northern Morocco. Considered by many to be Morocco’s intellectual and cultural capital, Fez is home to the world’s oldest university, and its sprawling medina (old city) is the largest car-free urban zone on the planet. The medina mystifies visitors with its warren of tiny lanes leading to various souks (markets), bursting with goods, people, donkeys, and carts.
Fez is truly a magical place!
