This is a flat Pyrex dish in Lime Green that is referred to as an “oblong baker” or “utility dish” and sometimes even a mini-lasagna pan. Whatever you call them, they’re a useful size of dish. Barbara Mauzy has these being introduced around 1952 or so in both this lime green color as well as flamingo.
It is marked as #231 and it holds 1.5 quarts. Measurements are about 11.5 x 6.5 and 2 inches deep. We’ve found it very useful as a serving dish as well as a baker in the oven for various things. There is another larger size that holds 2 quarts and is marked #232. We’ll list that here when we find it. Approximate dimensions of that one are 13 by 8 inches with similar depth.
