Vintage 60s El Palomar Large Covered Glazed Stoneware Casserole Dish

Vintage 60s El Palomar Large Covered Glazed Stoneware Casserole Dish

SKU: 620

Mexican pottery is a big weakness over at Villa Milagro, and seems to be a tie between Talavera and Tonala styles.. There is absolutely NO resemblance between the styles, in fact they're pretty much polar opposites; Talavera is bright and loud showing mostly botanical and celestial motifs, and Tonala is muted and shows more of flying animals and insects. We're not biased.. there's room to love it all!  This particular covered casserole is from the El Palomar collection designed by Ken Edwards in the 60s; the top handled lid shows bluebirds and flowers, and the handled body has butterflies flitting across it. It is large and in charge, and will feed a family, whether you choose to make a soup, a casserole, or a big rice dish, you'll be serving it up in true vintage style.

Holy cats, excellent vintage condition!  There is no crazing in the glaze, chips or cracks.  The pieces is heavy and has a very satisfying heft. These are dishwasher, microwave, and oven safe, but we believe all vintage dishware should be hand washed to extend their already long and storied lives.  This gentle giant has been hand washed and dried in preparation for its' next stop in life.
