The Prelude pattern was produced by the Viking Glass Company from 1948 - 1982. This candy is one of many pieces that belong to this set. The pattern is etched on the top of the lid and the side of the base. The lid is beaded on the outer edge and has a flame finial in the center. The base has three short legs on the bottom and is divided into three parts on the inside. The candy measures 7 1/2" across and stands about 5 1/4" tall to the top of the finial. Free of chips and cracks, this piece would look beautiful in any setting.
