This charming divided childs feeding dish was made in the 1940s for Hankscraft, a company that specialized in baby or juvenile items and small electric appliances. It's pink and in the shape of Donald Duck. Donald's head pulls off so you can fill the bowl with hot water to keep baby's food warm. It measures 8-1/2 by 6-1/2 by about 2 inches deep (not including the head stopper).
Hankscraft contracted with several American pottery firms from the 1920s to 1940s to make their ceramic items - they did not produce them in-house. Red Wing Potteries was one of them.
The cork lining around the stopper opening has some minor wear but is mostly intact. There are no chips, scratches, crazing, or other damage. I have this same dish in blue for a little boy listed elsewhere in my shop.
