This large festive bowl, chqâla,
was made in Nabeul, Tunisia. These were used at family dinners, often
containing the couscous. It is said that the fish motif and the
yellow/green colors symbolize water and freedom. It's in very nice condition but for a little glaze loss on
the fish and some edge chips.
