Erphila Art Pottery Individual Casserole with Lid, POPPY, Czecho Slovakia Mark (c. 1920s)

Individual Casserole with Lid

From Erphila Art Pottery comes this very colorful "individual casserole" (with lid) in the classic brilliant orange-red POPPY pattern. I love this pattern, because the intensity of the color is so rich, simple and pleasing. This particular shape (not in Poppy) is identified on pages 147 (picture 1562) and 205 (description) of the reference, "Czechoslovakia Pottery: 'Czeching' Out America'" (by Bowers, Closser, & Ellis). They describe Erphila as "an import company owned by Ebeling and Reuss of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The company imported high-quality pottery from many factories in Czechoslovakia, operating from approximately 1920 to 1940" (page 34).

This small casserole measures 2.75 inches high at the top of the handles, 2 inches at the rim (without the lid), 4.25 inches wide across the handle tops and across the middle of the lid, and 3 inches wide across the foot.

It is in fair condition. There is some wear to the red trim around the rim edges, as well as some small fleabites (small chips) on the underedge of the rim and on point where the lid is recessed to fit the handle. I do not see any chips, cracks, or crazing on the bowl, but it has been heavily used and has brown marks from cooking.

This piece is marked on the underside with "Erphila Art Pottery / Czecho Slovakia." There are also some faint underglaze impressed marks I can't read.
