Dish it out in this colorful, covered vegetable by J & G Meakin of England featuring an exotic Bird of Paradise on the lid, lid edges, and on the sides of the bowl. The birds are accompanied by Butterflies, flowers and exotic plants and the bowl and lid sport gold along their edges. Nicely sized at 11 1/8 inches in length from handle to handle, 9 inches in diameter and 5 inches in height, the bowl is stamped with the Meakin Sol mark on the bottom dating its creation between 1912 and the mid 1930s. It shows its age via a small chip on the underside of the bowl edge, various small stains on the underside of the lid and within the bowl, and age crazing is present (see pics). Besides presenting your next culinary masterpiece in style it would also make an attractive centerpiece or a nice covered catch-all.
