Description:  We call the three differently shaped open serving dishes with wide rims: “Open Vegetable Dishes”. There are octagonal, round and oblong shapes. They will be shown separately. The octagonal dishes we have seen range in length from 9 1/4″ to 12 5/8″. There may be smaller or larger ones, time will tell.

The largest dish shown here has a 7/16″ wide rim, 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.
