From original dealer catalogues, this promotional casserole has been indentified as having the name “Kim Chee”. It has been suggested this is not someone’s name, but actually refers to the popular spicy Korean staple dish (also known as Kimchi, Gimchi or Kimchee). We have kimchi in the fridge and eat it every so often, so this was our first thought as well.
The color of the casserole is a sort of butterscotch to mustard yellow. Both the lid and the casserole have this fired on color. There are intricate designs in an orange-brown color on the lid, sort of recalling flowers or hex signs in a spiral sort of pattern. The side of the base continues this motif, but is less spectacular than the lid.
The base is marked as a 043 1.5 quart casserole. This casserole came with a cradle or trivet that has the usual gold tone coloring along with wooden handles.
