Genuine California hand-made pottery, with chrome metal trivets. The chrome trivet protects the table from heat, and the handles make it easy to serve. These tuna bakers and salad servers were a novel way of serving tuna salads, jellied consomme, and other hot and cold tuna dishes! Most housewives sent away for a full set of four. You needed to send in two labels from either White Star Tuna or Chicken of the Sea brand tuna AND 60 cents.
My Grandmother had two sets of these that she sent for before she was married. This one she never used! They came in canary yellow, dusky rose, sea green, and turquoise blue. Each Chicken of the Sea casserole measures 8.25 inches long, 3 inches wide and 4.50 inches with lid.The salt and pepper shakers measure 2 inches tall and 3 inches long. The servers are in the shape of tuna fish. I also have the hard to find salt and pepper shakers. One is canary yellow and the other is turquoise blue. They are in perfect condition. This complete set of Chicken of the Sea Tuna Bakers/ Salad Servers, Salt and Pepper Shakers, and vintage advertising /ordering brochures are adorable, great to display with their shape, range of colors, playful pose, and usefulness. They are rare and very collectible. Happy to send more photos or answer any questions.
