    I have been looking for a very special clear crystal candy dish for my mom for about 8 years now and all leads have come up empty. Her grandmother had an antique dish that was passed down to her mom and when my grandmother passed away in 2006 it was passed down to my mom. Even though it was a simple candy dish it meant a great deal to my family considering all us "kids" use to sneak and get pieces of chocolate as youngsters. A few years ago my dog knocked over the candy dish and the bottom shattered .. we still have the top however.

    I was wondering if anyone has ever seen a candy dish that would match this top (see attached image). Or if you have any websites or people I could contact to lead me to find the bottom…anything would be much appreciated

      The candy dish lid is pressed glass, not crystal. The chances of finding a bottom to match your lid is pretty remote. No photos anywhere of the dish in it's entirety?

      looks like you have what is actually the lid to an EAPG sugar bowl. The pattern is 'Rosetta' by Beaumont Glass c1904; AKA: Circular Saw.
      here's an image:
      while typically a long show to think of finding a matching bowl/bottom, I found this one on eBay (just check with seller on measurements to insure a match)"

      Methinks TC has hit on something. :-)))))) What are the chances....I hope this is the bottom to your lid.

      I am pretty sure it's the right one!!! I measured it and the top is 4in the same as the bowl. I just ordered it so fingers crossed it works! Thank you all again so much. I am beyond grateful for your kindness and expertise! -Whitney
