This is a really nice #60 Watt Pottery open baker in the Starflower pattern. The baker is a yellow color and is hand decorated with one large red starflower, one small red starflower bud and three green leaves. This item has also been referred to as a vegetable bowl. It is marked Watt, U S A, Oven Ware and has the number 60 on the bottom. This pattern was first introduced during the early 1950’s.
It has light crazing which is expected due to age and a small chip or flake on the base. It has some manufacturing imperfections which are normal with a handmade pottery item but is in overall good condition. The baker is really quite nice and would make a nice addition to a collection or a great decorative item for the kitchen.
The baker measures approximately 2 1/4” in height and 6” in diameter.
