This stoneware mixing bowl with a high gloss finish is in the Gourmet pattern (also known as Gourmet Royale) made by Pfaltzgraff. It was sold between 1950 and 1987, then discontinued. The pattern frequently was referred to as brown drip. The creamy white glaze dripped over the brown base makes every piece unique. It was one of the most popular patterns in its day. It is not only beautiful but long lasting. I personally have this pattern which I have been using daily since the late 1970s. It goes in the dishwasher, oven, and microwave with no problems, and still looks as beautiful as the day I bought it.
This mixing bowl measures roughly 10" in diameter at the rim, and stands 4.5" tall. It is unmarked. The condition is very good, with no chips or cracks, but it does have some light utensil marks on the interior noticeable only under bright light. This piece could also be used as a serving bowl for salad, spaghetti, or other foods for your large family gatherings. Just a beautiful piece to add to your vintage Pfaltzgraff Gourmet dinnerware collection.
