Antique French pottery dish, or Gratin, originally used for a small oven dish. Charming, and very country French, this little dish has the traditional brown glaze on the in and outside, two way applied handles. There is wear, craquelure, and a hairline fissure after decades of service de cuisine.
These days? Use this well worn beauty to hold a soap next to your farm sink, to serve yourself pistachios while watching a fabulous French movie, or to gather olives to serve with your favorite aperitif. Display with your antique faience and majolica too, it has the rich, luscious color of the French countryside. Measures 6-1/4" x 5-1/2" x 1-1/4".
