Here’s and interesting chip and dip style dish (or four variety pickle emporia). It is triangular in form with three shallow bowls and the back of the rooster lifts off to expose a central well.
It is marked in the bottom B.B.K Made In USA 229. B.B.K is the mark of Brad B. Keeler and this work was made by his short lived California company after World War Two. The company foundered in the early 1950′s after Mr Keeler died from a heart attack in 1952 at the youthful age of 39.
It is in very good condition and measures about 13 inches across and 65 1/2 inches tall. there s a cut out slot in the back of the chicken for a spoon. Since the spoon is missing I’m not sure if this was sold with a ceramic spoon or if the end user was supposed to supply their own.
