For your consideration is a vintage medium blue colored with white interior covered stoneware casserole. It is marked on the bottom: Made Especially For Forman Family, Inc., By The Hall China Co., U.S.A. Hall China & Forman Family Products collaborated together in making a chrome & stoneware combination casserole & chrome carriers line. This is a product of their "Ribbed Buffet" design in blue. The casserole has the ribbed design around the lower part of the lid with a knob handle on top. The bottom of the casserole is in the same color, but has a smooth exterior. The interior is all in white, but does show some visible utensil wear from use. There is some smooth light brown coloring around the ridge where the casserole lid sits on on the inside. It looks & feels like it is suppose to be that way & was done during manufacturing. Does not take away or effect its use or looks! These sets usually came with the casserole & chrome holder, however, this one is minus the holder. Which is usually the first thing to be tossed or lost! This casserole is in very good, older & still usable condition. No chips or cracks noted! Approx.: 5 2/3"T X 9 3/4"Rd.
