- Pattern: Brown Stoneware with Amber Glass Lid
- Made in Monmouth, Illinois, USA
- Vintage: early 1970’s
- Details: This stoneware Casserole / Dutch Oven was made by Western Stoneware Company specifically for the Amana Radarange. Western Stoneware would manufacture special pieces for merchants who wanted to either, advertise by putting their name on the wares, or give items away as promotional incentives for purchasing their products. This was a very popular way of advertising and many potteries participated. This piece was a big deal for Amana and Western Stoneware as Amana introduced the very first commercial microwave oven in 1967, this piece shortly followed. It is embossed on the clay bottom: “Made for the Amana Radarange by Western Stoneware USA”. This is a very heavy piece, our price includes the ever increasing shipping fees, no need to worry at check out, the price you see is the price you pay. Still very useful today, not only microwave friendly, it can go in a regular oven too, but never on top of the stove. Great gift for a pottery collector, and pretty kitchen decor too!

The Western Stoneware Company was formed in 1906 from the merger of seven different stoneware and pottery companies: Monmouth Pottery Co. of Monmouth, Illinois, Weir Pottery Co. of Monmouth, Illinois, Macomb Stoneware Co. of Macomb, Illinois, Macomb Pottery Company of Macomb, Illinois, Culbertson Stoneware Co. of White Hall, Illinois, Clinton Stoneware Co. of Clinton, Missouri, and . Fort Dodge Stoneware of Fort Dodge, Iowa. Monmouth is known as “Maple City” so the new company kept the maple leaf logo long used by the Monmouth Pottery Company. They also used a word mark within an oval and a plain leaf with the initials WP inside it. This company still produces stoneware but only one of the seven plants is still in operation, still in Monmouth, Illinois.
