Here we have a very rare colander shaped like a milk pan. Milk pans always have the same distinctive form consisting of a prominent rolled rim, sloped sides and a flat bottom. This colander has 4 concentric rings of drainage holes in the bottom and 3 rings of holes around the side. This is a large milk pan colander measuring 11 ¾ in diameter by 4 in height. A similar colander is shown in Lisa McAllisters Collectors Guide to Yellow Ware Book I on page 55. In all my years of collecting, this is the only colander Ive ever seen in this form. Very few of these colanders were made and fewer survive in any condition to this day. The colander has a stable hairline at the rim and glaze loss from use with no other damage and no repairs.
