but I couldn't not buy this very pretty covered serving dish. I love the pale pink base and the 1950s floral grey, pink and blue lid, and it will get used as we usually have our veg served up in Pyrex bowls at the moment - without lids. This dish will ensure the potatoes and veg stay a lot warmer until we want a second helping. It is by J&G Meakin, is in perfect condition, and only cost £1.25 in the charity shop. Still don't know where I'm going to store it though!!
