This lovely piece is from the America collection by Pfaltzgraff which was only made from 1983-1989. The Americana Collection was inspired by folk art designs from the 19th century. Pfaltzgraff was commissioned by the Museum of American Folk Art in New York City to make this pattern with designs taken from the "Bird of Paradise" applique quilt c. 1858-63. The techniques that were to be used were stenciling and sponging.
This 2-quart covered casserole makes good use of the sponging effect as evidenced by the lid. The design on the base is stenciled and duplicates the look of yellow ware of that period of time. This casserole closely matches the soup tureen I also have listed on Ruby Lane.
The base is marked with the Pfaltzgraff logo and the #315. The pot measures 8 7/8" and would be wonderful for baking casseroles. The lid would keep in the moistness of the casserole and the heavy sides would produce a nicely browned crust to the contents. My family often does battle over the crusty edges to casseroles, dressings or macaroni and cheese.
I have other pieces from this collection and will be happy to combine for shipping, where possible. I will probably ship most of this set via FedEx unless it is under 3#, as the rates are usually more favorable. Therefore, I have signified freight as the shipping method so I can figure the rate to your door, rather than calculate automatically. Remember...I do not charge handling fees.
