This set was part of the "Priscilla's Garden"; ceramic range, made in a small studio on the North Shore ofMassachusetts. This is a yellow "onion" with underplate, for serving onion soup, or whatever else for that matter. Many of the master molds for this line were made from actual fruits or vegetables. I doubt she could have found a real onion this large, but Priscilla's astute attention to natural color and form are evident. A very natural
yellow with brown tones, with the flower and shoots of an onion plant on the plate. The
inside of the onion is a pale green. This line is microwave and dishwasher safe, and even
ovenproof. Marked "PJ"on bottom, the onion is about 5" tall and 4 1/2" across. The underplate is 7" across. Buyer pays $7.50 shipping/handling.
