METLOX PESCADO CASSEROLE DISH
NUMBER 620

"PESCADO," Spanish for "fish." As one can see this Metlox pattern consists of bright and beautiful colors.
It's a pattern that is extremely difficult to find. According to Carl Gibbs, Jr  in his book
Collector's
Encyclopedia of Metlox Potteries
,
there were only 10 items made in this pattern. More is the pity. It's a
dinnerware pattern that commands Artware prices, hand decorated and quality made. This is the two quart
casserole dish and lid, item number 620, and it is absolutely mint. The bowl carries a very faint mark, legible
if held at an angle to the light. It reads in large letters "METLOX,"  followed by what appears to be
"California Pottery, Ext 1927."  Above the word Metlox is the letter "P" followed by other letters
not distinguishable. It's probably the word "Pescado" since most Pescado is so marked. "Manhattan
Beach" is also visible, though obscure. The fish lid is 14" long by 11" wide. The bowl is 11 by 10. No
chips, cracks or repairs.
