Safe use of 'fine china' Covered Dish?
We will be using our nice early 50's china for several meals during the holidays. A few years ago I acquired a covered bowl from e-bay at a pleasantly low price. These often sell for well more than $70. This china includes a gold band. It looks very nice in the china cabinet.
So: is it useful for anything but looking at; or dumping some cooked item in it at serving time? In other words, can I bake in it? It seems unlikely, or very risky to me, but it is shaped like a casserole dish although not as heavy. I suppose that the rest of you learn about this early in life, but I didn't have anything like this back then.
