Description: We call the three differently shaped open serving dishes with wide rims: “Open Vegetable Dishes”. There are oblong, round, and octagonal shapes. They will be shown separately. The oblong dishes we have seen range in length from 8 3/4″ to 11″. There may be smaller or larger ones, time will tell.

The three largest dishes shown here have 3/8″ wide rims, the smallest has a 1/4″ wide rim. All rims are decorated with a blue border and all bottoms of the dishes are unglazed. There are no outside side decorations. They are all attractive and useful on the diner table.
