    This was the Christmas Eve find at the Flea Market today, an enamel on copper lidded bowl by Mesick Studios Altadena, Calif. USA
    The bowl is 3 1/2" tall by 6" across the top and 3 3/4" at the base, The lid fits over the bowl and is 6 1/4" out to out, it has a 1/4" lip, and is 1 3/8" high including the 1/2" brass center handle. The blue/green enamel on the bowl has a pebble texture, and the lid's lip is bare copper, and the top has yellow and orange dots over a modeled blue/green over white and copper, with clear enamel over all.
    The label on the bottom reads -Convivial Ware- -Enamel on Copper- -Hand Made In California- -By- -Mesick Studios- -This New Technique Assures The- -True Colors Lasting A Lifetime- -High Firing Gives The Hard- -Scratch Resisting Surface- -To Clean Just Wash in- -Soap & Water- -Verity Southall LTD.- -Altadena, Calif., USA-

    I really couldn't find any information about this company, except for the label, and I think it was made between the late 1950s-1970, but not sure.

    Thank you for looking, all comments always welcome! :^)

      Hi,

      This company specialized in handmade convivialware and silver manufacturing. You will find them in the Encyclopedia of American Silver Manufacturers. (https://www.amazon.com/Encyclopedia-American-Manufacturers-Schiffer-Collectors/dp/0764306022). It is enamel plated on copper. Their silver is marked with an M&M logo. This was my great grandfather's company and I have about 50-60 pieces that they made. In our family these heirlooms are passed down to the eldest female decedent and for now that's me. The company was located in Los Angeles until the 70's. If you would like further information on this feel free to message me privately.

      Best,
      NW
