    Very nice. I have an idea of what I think a grease dish is but, would you care to enlighten me?

    Grease or oil dishes (bowls) were used to hold rendered candlefish oil into which the Northwest Coast Indians would dip their dried fish to make the fish more palatable.

    I thought it might of had something to do with holding grease or bacon fat or something like that but, I like your answer better.
