A: Stanislaw Wiza founded his stoneware pottery in Boleslawiec, Poland in 1963. They produced high-quality, lead-free, white stoneware that was fired at a high temperature. Most of their ware was decorated with cobalt blue as the primary color. They made casserole dishes, thimbles, trinket boxes, plates and piggy banks, table accessories, lamps, cups, butter dishes and figurines. Today Wiza employs approximately 120 people. Your covered dish is either a small casserole or a trinket box and could easily be used for buttons. It was made in the late 20th century. It would probably be worth $50 to $75.
