Description: We call the three differently shaped open serving dishes with wide rims: “Open Vegetable Dishes”. There are round, octagonal and oblong shapes. They will be shown separately. The round dishes we have seen range in diameter from 8 1/4″ to 11″. There may be smaller or larger ones, time will tell. Herbert Schiffer on page 174 of his 1975 book calls them “Pie Plates”.

The largest dish shown here has a 1/2″ wide rim, the other three have 3/8″ wide rims. All rims are decorated with a blue circle and all bottoms of the dishes are unglazed. There are no outside side decorations. They are all attractive and useful on the diner table.
