I would appreciate any leads as to the manufacturer or decorator of this ruby candy dish. It is 5.5" high x 6.5" wide. There are no marks on the bottom. It is actually ruby glass and not flashed or stained. It is somewhat thin glass but not terribly delicate.
The decoration is fired and obviously professionally executed. I also have an emerald green candy dish, differently shaped, with the same type decoration.
I believe this piece to be about 50 years old, it is certainly not from the 1930s or earlier. My thoughts are either Czech or West Germany.
I have not found this piece in any of the standard glass books in America and would appreciate the groups thoughts on which direction might be fruitful for identification.http://www.glasshousenc.com/AWCOpics/reddecocandy1.jpghttp://www.glasshousenc.com/AWCOpics/reddecocandy2.jpg
