Okay, ladies...you all did such a wonderful job identifying my nut grinder. So I thought I'd come to you again. I picked up this wonderful piece of holiday pottery at the GW Saturday for $1.99! It's a piece of Lang redware in the Believe pattern. I just love the colors of this pattern. And I love snowmen. So I HAD to have it! But please...what IS it used for?
There's two pieces here and it appears the bowl fits into the crock. There's no lid and I don't think there was a lid, as there is no lip for a lid to sit on.
I have looked for this piece on line, on auctions sites and on the Lang website. I have found other pieces in this pattern but not this particular piece. If this is a simmering pot, how does it work and is it safe to put on a stove top? Does anyone out there know anything about this piece? Thanks so much for your help! ~~Annie
