Pretty hard to find these pieces by Phaltzgraff.  The pattern is called Country Time and it was designed by Ben Siebel for Phaltzgraff in 1952.  This one is quite large  and would hold a good sized salad.  The pattern on the sides looks like a stylized flower or vegetable.  The colour is Saffron and it is speckled with a darker colour.  Very mid century modern looking dish. The pattern on the inside appears faded but the glaze is still shiny so I am not sure if the pattern was supposed to be  a light contrast or not. The pattern on other pieces I have seen on ebay appear to be darker.  Could just be from a different lot or could be from use although the inside of the bowl does not appear to be scratched nor showing signs of wear.

Available for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.  Open daily, 10am to 5pm, year round, only closed on Christmas day.  Plenty of free parking behind the store.  Nice old heritage building with 5000 square feet which houses 55 vendors currently.
