Heavy glass dish has straight sides and a deeply molded rayed bottom. The lid top surface is shiny chrome topped with a translucent red bakelite disk knob; underside of the lid is plain stainless steel. Stands about 3 inches with the lid in place, including the knob; glass dish measures 4 1/2 inches across. T are no maker's marks on either the glass or the metal, so do not know the maker. The chrome and bakelite date it to the Depression Era, circa 1930s. The glass is thicker and heavier than usually found in Depression Glass; the lid was made to fit the base exactly -- it fits securely. Not sure what it was intended to be, but it could be used as a candy dish, condiment on a larger serving piece or by itself on a buffet, or even a vanity puff box or trinket box. Add a swanky Art Deco touch to your desk when you fill it with paperclips. Use it to hold paper coasters on your vintage bar. In very good condition. Glass has no cracks or chips, does have a small area of inner rim roughness. Chrome has some fine surface marks consistent with age and gentle handling, no rust, discoloration, or pitting. The knob is securely fastened, and turned the cloth yellowish when polished with Simichrome.
