Fire King Georges Briard Splashbowl Casserole
This is a retro Eames Era Fire King Covered Casserole. Typical of the era it is the 2 1/2 qt. splashbowl shape. The bowl itself (marked Fire King) is a gold flecked speckled design. The enamel cover is white with patterned sections of a floral design. Although it isn't signed, I believe that it is a Georges Briard. I have found only one other similar bowl (without cover) being sold on another antiques venue. The seller, not having the lid, identified it as a Fred Press. Both designers did similar work for Fire King in the 50's (not all signed). However, I believe that the lid design as well as the overall gold is more typical of Briard.
