Sizes and ID#s: #043 (1.5 qt)
An interesting promo casserole that we see come up relatively infrequently, we’ve currently named this unknown pattern “Wicker”. It’s most often referred to as “Weave”, but we decided against that because we thought another pattern had a similar name. Other names people have given this casserole are Geometric, Woven, Thatched, and Basketweave. We haven’t seen a boxed version yet, so can’t comment on whether this had a name or not.
The base of the casserole is a standard 043 1.5 quart size that is solid color yellow to slightly olive green - a bit of a strange color than your usual yellow. The opal white top lid is marked as 943C and has a wonderful wicker pattern in that same yellow color. It sort of looks like Escher with its interlocking geometric shapes.
The pattern appears on the entire top of the casserole lid. We were lucky enough to find ours with the candle warmer cradle intact. The one we found had really nice wooden handles on a gold-toned metal cradle. There is a single candlewarmer in the center of the cradle. We haven’t yet tried actually putting a candle in there and using it to keep food in the casserole warm - we’re a bit nervous about applying flame directly to the bottom!
