Red earthenware casserole with incised floral decorations in blue, green, and yellow underglaze over white. 1934.
Made by Karl when he worked in the Brown County Pottery. This casserole was used by Karl's mother, Amy Lee Kidwell Martz, in her kitchen, for her entire life after Karl made it. Dark spots on the bottom are burns from her stove. (The tag "#271" was applied by Karl and has little significance.)
