DISHES-VEGETABLE DISHES-OPEN (Oblong, Wide Rim)

Description: We call the three differently shaped open serving dishes with wide rims: "Open Vegetable Dishes". There are oblong, round, and octagonal shapes. They will be shown separately. The oblong dishes we have seen range in length from 8 3/4" to 11". There may be smaller or larger ones, time will tell.

DISHES-VEGETABLE-COVERED (3 Pieces, Oval, Square Handles)

Description: These are 3 piece, covered, oval, vegetable serving dishes. They consist of the base that has 2 square handles and two Canton scenes; the deep liner that has a partial scene in the bottom and fits loosely on the base and has 4 holes to let air out and has a slight raised edge to hold the top on; and the top that loosely fits on the liner and has the Canton scene and a pineapple knob with a hole in it.

DISHES-VEGETABLE-COVERED (3 Pieces, Quatrefoil, Twisted Handles)

Description:  This is a 3 piece, covered, quatrefoil (4 loop), vegetable serving dish. It consists of a bulbous sided base that has 2 twisted handles and two Canton scenes; the shallow liner that has only rim decoration and fits loosely on the base and has a slight raised edge to hold the top on; and the top that has the Canton scene and a pineapple knob with a hole in it. All 3 pieces have the quatrefoil shape.

DISHES-VEGETABLE-COVERED (Oval)

Description: Although most are very common, the very largest and the smallest oval or diamond shaped covered vegetable dishes are considered scarce. Shown are 7 graduated dishes in two rows from 7 1/2" long to 11 1/8" long. The two dishes shown together are the largest & smallest for contrast. All have pineapple knobs. Note that in the last picture the smaller knob is not only smaller and poorly done but the shape has changed compared to the knob from the largest vegetable dish.

DISHES-VEGETABLE-COVERED (Rectangular)

Description:  Although quite common the very largest and the smallest rectangular vegetable dishes are considered scarce. Shown are 5 graduated covered rectangular vegetable dishes from 7 1/8" long to 11 3/8" long.  All have domed tops that are crowned by pineapple knobs. Note that in the last picture the smaller knob is not only smaller but the shape has changed. Each top has indented corners that match the bottoms that are also indented. All are nicely decorated with the Canton scene and rain cloud border on the tops and bottoms.

DISHES-VEGETABLE-OPEN (Octagonal, Wide Rim)

Description:  We call the three differently shaped open serving dishes with wide rims: "Open Vegetable Dishes". There are octagonal, round and oblong shapes. They will be shown separately. The octagonal dishes we have seen range in length from 9 1/4" to 12 5/8". There may be smaller or larger ones, time will tell.

DISHES-VEGETABLE-OPEN (Round, Wide Rim)

Description: We call the three differently shaped open serving dishes with wide rims: "Open Vegetable Dishes". There are round, octagonal and oblong shapes. They will be shown separately. The round dishes we have seen range in diameter from 8 1/4" to 11". There may be smaller or larger ones, time will tell. Herbert Schiffer on page 174 of his 1975 book calls them "Pie Plates".
