We’ve had a hard time coming up with a name for this one, since it’s another one of those named “Hospitality” in the advertisements. We know it’s a promotional from around 1960, but a good name has not been found. So for now we’ll label it as Green Wheat. I know that may be confusing (with another Blue Wheat promotional and with Autumn Harvest), so maybe a better name could be chosen for it.
Robyn Schnaible contributed the above picture of the casserole in its cradle.
The pattern is an autumnal wheat sheafs and leaves on a nice greenish teal background. The casserole came with a clear lid and a metal cradle with squarish wooden handles. I believe it is a 2 quart casserole and is of the rectangular type known as a Space Saver.
