Thank you to Merebearlandon for the great photos of these Golden Honeysuckle items. The one we’re talking about here is the Oblong Deep 2.5 Casserole which is the middle item in the picture above. Remember that there are actually two different 2.5 quart casseroles: a deep version and a shallow version. The lid for this itme also fits the 1.5 quart golden honeysuckle item and is marked #935.
Here’s a picture of the original box for one that came with the fabulous walnut tray.
Again, we believe these also came separately without the wooden tray, and if so, then number on the box would be #935. Specifics on this particular casserole: About 12.5 inches by 8.25 inches, 3 inches deep. The lid is approximately 11 inches by 8 inches.
