This is a wonderful skillet shaped open casserole made by the Stangl Pottery in the Amber Glo pattern. The skillet is bright white on the bottom and around the inside rim. It is decorated with colorful patterns of gray, brown and yellow in the center. The rim has a wide band of gray around it and the top rim has a band of terra cotta. The back is done in Stangl’s popular terra cotta or terra rose.
The skillet is marked on the back Stangl Pottery, Trenton, NJ, Amber-Glo, Stangl Second. This pattern was made from the 1954 through 1978 when the Stangl Factory closed.
The skillet measures approximately 8 ¾" in diameter and 1 ¾” deep.
The condition is good but there is one small chip on the edge of the spout. There is no crazing or any other condition problems.
The Stangl pottery was one of the oldest and most successful potteries in the United States. It was started by Samuel Hill in Flemington, NJ in 1814. It was acquired by Abram Fulper during the 1860’s and remained in business until it closed in 1978.
