Description: These deep octagonal Hot Water Dishes do not have covers. To use, hot water would be poured into the bowl thru the spout which would help to keep food warm.

There are 6 flowers arranged around the outside rims. The bottoms are glazed. These HWDs are very nicely decorated. They vary very little in size and are quite common. They are deeper by about 1″ than the shallow HWDs, this means more hot water and a warmer dinner!
