Ceramic Glazed Tile Lid & Fire King 2qt. Gold Flex Dish

This is a remarkable chafing dish including the brass stand with burner, a two quart removable Fire-King casserole dish with gold flex design, and it has a tile insert lid, (helps keep things cool or hot), The lid is decorated with a shiny glazed ceramic tile featuring the Ambrosia pattern on a white background consisting of a pineapple, strawberry and other geometric design accents, in sharp colors of red, gold, black, white, turquoise and metallic gold, all beautifully executed by Georges Briard. Georges Briard was an artist and a designer in Chicago in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, best known for his signature dishware and glassware. He used a lot of gold and metallic highlights in his works. He was born in Poland as Jakub Brojdo, but adopted the French-sounding pseudonym, perhaps to make his designs seem more chic.

The ceramic tile is in excellent condition and a fine example of mid-century style. The 81/2" diameter brass lid, 6" tall stand, and attached burner cup are all in vintage excellent condition with an exception of a small soft raised spot on the lid, which I show on the last photo. Very small but thought it should be mentioned. The gold-flexed Fire-King casserole dish is in perfect condition has double eared side handles for easy removal from stand, and looks as if were never used! It is stamped on the bottom, "" T.M. REG., FIRE-KING, MADE IN USA, 2 QT." The total measurements of the assembled chafing dish are 10" w. (including handles), and 7 1/2" tall.

This is a great vintage kitchenware piece in exceptional condition! A cross collectible for either George Briard fans or Fire King fans. Please contact us with any questions. Thank you for looking!
