Description: Although most are very common, the very largest and the smallest oval or diamond shaped covered vegetable dishes are considered scarce. Shown are 7 graduated dishes in two rows from 7 1/2″ long to 11 1/8″ long. The two dishes shown together are the largest & smallest for contrast. All have pineapple knobs. Note that in the last picture the smaller knob is not only smaller and poorly done but the shape has changed compared to the knob from the largest vegetable dish. The bottoms’ rims are mostly wavy and the tops’ irregular shapes are inset into the bottoms.  All are nicely decorated with the Canton scenes; however, rain cloud borders are only on the bottoms. The dish bottoms are unglazed and have 4 flowers around the outsides. Separated tops and bottoms rarely fit together and that is why we see so many topless bottoms and orphan tops.
