Description

This body style is characterized by a diamond shape footprint on pieces such as covered vegetables and a distinctive finial shaped like a chambered spiral which resembles a Nautilus.  The spiraled handles continue the nautical theme.  Lustred tendrils at the finial and handle terminals resemble seaweed.  The relish/pickle is also chambered and features the seaweed tendrils at the handles.
