This beautiful and rare pattern was first produced in the Victorian times. The original Victorian Covered Honey Dish had splayed legs instead of the straight ones this one has. This style was produced in the 1970's for home parties by Tiara Exclusives for Indiana Glass. When they were produced in Victorian times they were made to hold honey in the comb, as it was a custom to keep honey on the table at all meals. This beautiful replica is now used for multi-purposes. If I were to keep it I would probably use it for honey, candy or a fruit salad dish. Cranberries would look beautiful in it! The frosted white dish is the most sought after and the hardest to find. The covered dish features bees and bee hives all around the edges and bees on the knob handled lid. The bottom features bees arranged in a snowflake or flower design, very unique! There is a band of honey comb surrounding the bottom edge of the lid. The dish is crafted from high quality heavy duty glass, having a greatly detailed design and resting on four raised feet. The dish measures 5.5" square and 6" high. It is in excellent condition with no cracks, chips or bites. A delightful centerpiece for any table that would also make a wonderful conversation piece. Thank you for looking!
