Description: Several names have been given to these elongated oval, narrow dishes: Celery, Relish & Eel. Take your pick but, over the years we have heard celery used the most. There is another variation of these celery, relish, eel dishes, the elongated octagonal celery dish which is discussed on another page. They are more common than these ovals.
Elongated oval celery dishes are rare, these two are the only ones we have seen. They all have unglazed bottoms.
