Even if you don't cook like Martha Stewart your food will look as good, presented hot and fresh in this Art Deco electric serving dish. It was made by Manning - Bowman, the company that helped set a good-looking Moderne table in the 1930s/40s.
This server is made of chrome with red Bakelite handles and knob. The covered dish sits atop the electric heater base that still works. It heats up right away and stays hot till you pull the plug. The original cord is excellent with no excessive wear. It's also long at 12 feet so it's easily accessible to an outlet.
The base measures about 12 inches across the Bakelite handles. The covered dish measures 11 1/4 inches across the handles. The dish is 3 inches deep and can probably hold up to several quarts of something delicious. The entire piece is about 9 1/4 inches high with lid and base.
The only flaw we see is one small bump to the side of the lid (we tried to take a photo of it but the highly reflective chrome makes it hard to see anything). The chrome also looks much darker in the photos than it actually is. There may be a few spots that can use a little polishing but overall, we think this is in excellent vintage condition. Ready to serve and look Art Deco fabulous. Price includes free domestic shipping.
