Circa: 1964-1968
Manufacturer: Bennington Potters, Vermont
Prior to changing the name to Bennington Potters around 1960, David Gil's company was known as Cooperative Design. There, he and other Alfred designers fashioned all sorts of interesting Mid-Century items. Having trained at Alfred University, Gil came to Bennington in 1948. His designs are included in many Mid-Century exhibits and catalogues.

This is the #1342 rimmed covered casserole with metal bail handle. It is done in an early brown glaze. It measures 10 1/4 inches across x 7 inches wide. It has a lid which features a metal handle which was formed into the pottery. . It would make a great baking and/or serving dish as. It's a good-sized practical dish. It would look great with your McCobb or Eames buffet.

The casserole bottom is marked 1342. The lid is marked 1342 C, most likely the C refers to it being the cover. It is in very good vintage condition. It was used to bake and cook in but there is no damage. There is a heat check on the bottom but that was there when it was made. It was there when I bought it and will be there when you buy it. I describe my items accurately.

It is signed with the circular 1964-1968 mark which includes the words Bennington Potters.

Add it to your Bennington Potters or collection of Mid-Century pottery today.
