Rafael and Concepcion (Connie) Rocha Lopez owned this large, glazed terra cotta pot. Both Rafael and Connie were born in Mexico. They frequently returned there and brought things back with them, including this crock pot. Reportedly, Connie used the pot in her home to cook beans. In 1963, the Lopez's opened Connie's, the first family-owned Mexican restaurant in Wichita, Kansas.
