This is really an usual piece. It is a small dish, in a paisley shape, and was hand-made by a potter in the 1950's. It has Psalm 37:4 (Delight thyself in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart) printed in gold on the front. The bottom of the dish has hand-painted in gold 'Alora's of Houston' which was a gift shop in Houston, Texas.
This is pretty and has a great message too. What we like about it is the unusual colours and pattern, and it would make a great gift for a son or graduate. It is in great vintage condition, with no cracks or crazing with faded wording.
