Need Your Help Again!

Okay, 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


  1. I think it is called a dip chiller or something like that. Put ice in the bottom and your dip in the other one. I have seen them for sale in country sampler. Very cute!

  2. Beth is absolutely right!
    It is a dip chiller. What a great find!

  3. Yep,a dip chiller...a great find for you I can just imagine the price the person paid for it!

  4. I was going to say dip chiller too! VERY cute!!

  5. Oh, shoot! I was going to say dip chiller, too! Some others beat me to it!

    It's cute, though!


  6. It's a dip chiller and a very nice one. What a great holiday find.

  7. Annie,

    I see you've been answered...what a cute piece.


  8. Glad you found out what it was. It's very cute. What a great find. Our GW never seems to have anything like that when I go.

  9. What a nice find. I have one of those and use it for buffets and parties. So nice to be able to put dip on the table and keep it cold. Good job, Dawn
