This casserole dish was made by the Frankoma Potteries of Oklahoma and is in the Wagon Wheel pattern which was first introduced in 1942. This was called their 2 quart Baker and is especially nice with the horseshoe handles. Around the top edge of the bowl are symbols that look like cattle brands. The lid looks like the spokes of a wagon wheel with the hub as the knob. I think this might be the Patina glaze over the Sapulpa clay with much of the red/brown clay showing through as a rich brown with green accents. The inside of the pot is actually much more vibrant. This glaze and its name were only used for a few years before being changed to Prairie Green in 1944. On the bottom it is marked with the Frankoma name and the design number 94V. The name is small and incised with the oblong O which was used through the 1940's. All of these things would establish the date of this piece between 1942 & 1944.
It measures about 4 3/8” high to the top of the lids knob and about 10” across at the handles. It is in very good condition with minimal wear and no damage. There are bubbles in the glaze on the top of the lid which is a firing situation, not damage.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
