Excello Warming Dish Dutch Children Design. This adorable Excello divided baby's warming dish has Dutch children designs in each of the 3 parts of its white pottery insert, and an aluminum exterior with scalloped tab, set-on handles on each side. The dish measures 6-1/2" diameter, 8-5/8" handle to handle, and 2" deep. In great overall condition; aluminum exterior has some surface scratching from use but still has a nice shiny finish; aluminum rim has one slight dent (near cork), bottom has some shallow denting from use.
Pottery insert is in excellent condition with no cracks, stains, crazing, and minimal wear to the adorable designs in each of the 3 sections. Each design features a Dutch girl dressed in pink and a Dutch boy dressed in blue in different scenes: Largest section shows boy & girl running through tulips holding hands; one smaller section shows the boy and girl looking away to a windmill and cottage; one smaller section has boy & girl holding hands and dancing - all are so sweet! Colors are pale shades of pink, blue, yellow, and green.
This type of dish is designed to keep food warm by filling it with hot water. This one has a cork pushed all the way in where the original plug was placed. I have not attempted to remove this cork...it looks dry and somewhat fragile so I'll leave that to buyer's preference. Bottom of aluminum exterior is marked "EXCELLO Trademark U.S. Reg. 371136". This is a charming piece!
