I suspect it was for cold cream, and sat on a dressing table, rather than for candy.

If it was a cosmetics counter display, that might explain scarcity... but should find a match in a smaller item as far as the design is concerned but possibly with design on only the lid and a base that may not even be glass. It could have been supplied to shops in a display stand with both faces vertical for all round visibility.

This isn't a bump!  ;)

I'm adding a couple of pics that show the piece in a slightly different light. The flatness of the top (bottom exactly the same) clearly shown.  'Jobseeking' once again so more time for glass :-)
