A very large vintage stoneware platter or chop plate, made by Casual Ceram of Japan in the hard to find "Athena" pattern. Most of the ones on the market are of the "Galaxy" pattern, which is similar in color, but with different patterns and a white center. It dates from the late 1960's to early 1970's. In pristine condition. It would look great as a centerpiece, such as in this picture of a cantaloupe dessert course. I love the brown and orange colors..so 70's!
