What a clever idea – to use an old, worn granite ware lid and turn it into kitchen art! From the studio of Robin Lee, this piece, signed in 1982 depicts a cute chicken sitting on a nest. Measuring 8 ¼” in diameter, it is painted in gold, yellow, red, green, and white. Even though the lid is worn, it still reflects a good bit of light, so the white splotches are not painted nor worn areas, just reflections. Naturally, since this is a lid, there isn’t a hanger on the back, but a plate hanger would work just fine for hanging. Of course, it would look cute sitting on a shelf, too. Robin Lee had her own shop which was full of wonderful primitive pieces and her own hand-painted decorative items as well as pieces done by her students.
