Vintage Floral Ceramic Quiche, Tart, Pie Dish - Made in England - White Baking Dish
To my mind, nothing is more inviting, especially in spring and summer, than a vegetable quiche, for this versatile dish lends itself eminently well to a variety of seasonal vegetables. James Beard
This vintage dish is unmarked except for a Made in England stamp, but it is very similar to vintage Portmeiron Botanical Garden dishes. Those dishes are usually signed on the front and this one is not so we can't say for certain if it hails from there exactly. But what we can say about this multi-purpose dish is that it is beautiful! Bearing a colorful bouquet of tulips, peonies, petunias and forget-me-nots fussed over by a spotty butterfly, this dish is pretty for both whimsical and practical purposes. Use it to make your next quiche, pie or tart or abandon baking altogether and display it on your kitchen wall or counter for easy breezy effortless garden style, year round.
- If you are a fan of the secret language of flowers this one is all about love (maybe for baking?!) representing good fortune (peony), perfect love (tulip), true love (forget-me-nots) and soothing presence (petunia).
- Heavy constitution with thick walls means that it will hold up well for heavier pies like apple and cherry
- Clear, crisp graphics
- Colors include purple, golden yellow, light blue, navy blue, pine green, dark coral, and brown
No chips or cracks. There are 3 sets of light grey scuff marks near the peony flower but they were so light they were tricky to capture. Please see photos.
Measures 9.5" inches in diameter and 1.5" inches in height.
In addition to traditional baking and food presentation functions, this pretty dish would look so pretty hanging on a wall in your kitchen or presented as a hostess gift for your next party or overnight stay.
