This pink speckled covered casserole with cradle was part of Bauer's Monterey Moderne line from the 1950s (sometimes spelled Monterrey). It's 7-3/4" diameter by 3" deep (the bowl only, not including the cradle or height of the lid). The underside has the impressed Bauer mark and both the casserole and matching lid are in perfect condition with no damage or wear.
The retro goldtone shiny brass cradle stands on three wire tripod legs and has coiled wire double side handles. The cutwork sides have a curvy scroll design that I would describe as organic in a Mid Century Modern way. The cradle still shines and is in great condition with only very minor finish rub wear to the handle extensions.
