In the early 1960s, Red Wing Potteries adapted the shapes from its True China line into three stoneware patterns: Damask, Blue Shadows, and Kashmir. Damask featured a avocado green floral design on a beige speckled ground. Unlike the handpainted patterns of True China, Damask was stenciled. The pattern has a bit of texture as a result. Touted as ovenproof and detergent safe, Damask was a popular pattern, strongly evocative of a certain 60s swank, which in my mind, goes well with globe lamps hanging from a chain, shag carpeting, and Danish modern furniture. This enormous platter is 15" long by 10-1/2" wide, and looks to be unused. (I couldn't even fit it in my desktop photo booth lengthwise!) Even your biggest Thanksgiving turkey will be no match for this platter.
