This vintage OvenServe turquoise custard by Homer Laughlin would make a wonderful serving piece for sauces/condiments--or be equally at home in the kitchen for food prep.

Dimensions: Custard is about 2.5 inches high and about 3.25 inches across.

OvenServe features an embossed flower pattern on the outside with vertical ridging below the lip. With production starting in 1933, OvenServe was HL's first kitchenware line, according to my Harvey Duke reference book

The custard is marked on the bottom with Genuine OvenServe Ware, the HL logo, U.S.A .

It is in very good vintage condition with no chips, cracks, staining or other damage. Some manufacturing flaws are present: Colored glaze was applied unevenly on one side (see first photo); on the same side an unglazed speck near the base has darkened. Also along the custard's rim there is a glaze miss (see last photo).

According to the Duke reference book, Homer Laughlin and Taylor Smith & Taylor produced the custard, and three other small pieces, as premiums for Quaker Oats during the 1930s. They come in several colors and make a neat collection.
