These candy trays look like faceted glass but are actually plastic and come in a range of colours with pink being the most common. They were popular in the 60s/70s and made in Hong Kong. They were usually used during the Lunar New Year festivities for cookies, sweets and other festive goodies, each housed in their individual sections, and served to visiting guests.

    Did you think you were buying glass, but received plastic?

    Hi bobogal, I misread nuts comment. I thought you had left it.
