This little Dutch boy saved your baby's dinner - not Holland. This pottery warming dish for baby's food was manufactured in the 1940s for Hankscraft of Reedsburg, Wisconsin. This one is in great shape. The only flaw is that new cork needs to be applied to the stopper for the warm water well. The dish measures 6 .25 inches wide, 8 .5 inches long, and 3.75 inches in height. There are three food compartments. The two smaller wells are formed by those wide dutch pantaloons. The larger well has the four buttons and v-neckline of the shirt with the arms forming the sides. The wooden shoes are present, but not a part of the food container itself. The stopper is the head of the typical Dutch boy - wide boxy hat and longer hair. The facial features are pleasant. The back has a circular ring in the center, but no manufacturer's mark is present.
