So it was with this candy dish. It's twin was always on the coffee table... and yes, filled with candies. I don't remember what kind of candy now, but I sure remember the candy dish.
I also remember always having to line up the scallops top and bottom.... I've always been a little OCD!
I love the soft scallops all the way around
and those circles in the bottom
and the sweet finial on top.
It was made by Anchor Hocking in the 50s and is quite heavy
Anyway, I'm glad to have it.... I'm not sure if there will actually be candies in it (because then I will be too, too tempted to eat them...) and it probably won't be on my coffee table (which is generally filled with yarn and crochet projects), but I will find a good use for it. And the perfect place for it.
