I snapped up this unusually shaped glass bowl from a charity shop today. I saw it had some writing on it, and thought it was a rd mark. However, when I got it home and looked carefully I realised it said RACEDARLIN! I asked Hubby what he thought it said, and he said it looked like Grace Darling, without a G on each end. It told me what to look up anyway, and it turns out it is a Celery dish, probably from the 19th century. Grace Darling is a British heroine from the 19th century who rowed out to rescue sailors from a shipwreck. It is 11" long.
