The Quaker Oats OvenServe Ware promotion used five pieces from Homer Laughlin's extensive OvenServe kitchenware line:
All five items were made in various solid colors available in the 1950s. Taylor, Smith & Taylor Co. shared in the production and many of their specked Pebbleford glazes were used on the OvenServe shapes.
- Custard Cup
- Individual Pie Baker
- Oval Baking Dish
- French Casserole.
TS&T marked their pieces with a cast mold marking, whereas HLC's version is usually marked with a backstamp. In rare cases, HLC also used a marking in the mold. TS&T altered HLC's French casserole which results in two distinct versions. With the original style made by HLC, the bowl and handle were made separate and joined together before firing. TS&T cast the piece in one entire mold thereby eliminating the extra step of having to attach the handle. The top of the handle
on TS&T French casserole meets the rim of the bowl; HLC's handle is located in the middle of the bowl.
