A vintage casserole by the Bennington Pottery of Vermont. This casserole was designed by David Gil. This shape was made in several sizes, of which this is somewhere in the middle. The base is glazed in a satin white, the lid in a tawny yellow Bennington calls "Elements Gold".
Starting in 1964, Bennington became one of the leading American producers of Modernist pottery and dinnerware. They eventually grew too large to be considered a studio pottery, but have remained too small to be grouped with the large, industrial potteries.
It's 8.25" across the handles, 7" in diameter and 4.5" tall to the top of the handle.
Condition: light wear/soiling to the bottom edge, two 0.25" glaze skips to the edge of the lid, otherwise fine.
Mark: impressed mark on the bottom. This is the earliest form of the Bennington mark, including the stylized arm and asterisk-shaped "spark" which later became their logo. The mark reads, "Bennington / Potters / Vermont / *1620."
