I have never seen another casserole like this one for Fiesta!

I believe this to be an aluminum teal or aqua enameled covered casserole, it is a beaut! Manufactured for Homer Laughlin, it is 1940s-1950s vintage.

The casserole is aluminum with aqua enamel inside and out both the lid and the pan! It has the characteristic Fiesta rings around the edges and sports a set of hand-like, screwed-on aluminum handles as well as a matching aluminum nob on the top of the lid.

The casserole measures 11 1/2 inches in diameter (9 1/2 inches without the lid), 15 inches handle to handle, and is nearly 7 inches high to the top of the lid (3 inches without).

The bottom marking shows a stamped mark with "Genuine Fiesta" and a Spanish dancer and "ACCESSORIES/Authorized Licensee of The Homer Laughlin China Co./Made in Thailand for Metro Marketing." Homer Laughlin commissioned Metro Marketing to manufacture this covered casserole to go with its brilliantly glazed dinnerware and tableware!

The casserole and lid and inside of the pan are in great condition, however, I am unsure as to what happened to the bottom.

I have never seen another casserole like this one for Fiesta!

    That's really neat!! I am sure something that rare would be worth a lot to a collector. Nice find! I love Fiesta ware!
