If I had found this like it is in the first picture I would have thought it was a small vase. Fortunately (I guess), it was found with a lid. So no longer a vase but (in my eyes) a rather impractical candy dish. The interest here is that there are shapes out there that look like and may even serve as vases but were actually entirely different items when created.
This piece stands 8½" (21.5 cm) tall with the lid in place. The foot has a 3" (7.5 cm) diameter. The décor is made up of clear-cased red and yellow confetti-size frit in a clear ground. The underside is not marked.
