Measuring 10.25" in diameter and 3" high, this is wonderful simple and plain round serving bowl. Often referred to as a milk pan or nappy, these round shallow dishes were used in dairies to separate the cream from the milk. The milk would have been poured in the shallow dish which would allow the cream to rise as the milk cooled but did not sour. These were also used as baking dishes and can be found in a variety of sizes ranging from approximately 8" to 11" in diameter. Being only 3" deep, this makes a perfect serving dish to present a salad or various other goods. Marked on the bottom, "Semi-Granite Cook and Hancock." This piece dates to the 1800's England. No condition issues with normal wear to the molded feet on the bottom. These feet are merely squares molded into the base to provide a barely-there platform for the dish. This was to allow air flow for both of the uses of this piece. Very intuitive and creative. We professionally package and can easily, safely ship any item, fully insured, within the US.
