El Patio was Gladding McBean's first line of dinnerware, first produced in 1934, before the company adopted the Franciscan trade name. These skillet shaped long handled bowls are individual casseroles, 5-1/4" diameter by just under 2" deep by 9" long from rim to handle. There is no lid. I have one in Redwood brown and two in coral pink.
All three casseroles are in excellent condition with no damage or crazing. The Redwood bowl has the oval GMcB mark, the company's earliest backstamp. The coral dishes have the early 1940s round Franciscan Ware backstamp. White spots in the photos are from reflections and glare. Price is per casserole, please indicate your color choice when ordering.
