I've never come across this shape anywhere - it sits on three small round feet so presents as though it is floating - delighted with it.
Enjoy

are you near  the south coast m?

I passed up on its twin brother and a matching pin tray a few weeks ago because they were so badly damaged :-\

I wonder if yours is part of that same set and if the tray/ candlesticks are lurking somewhere ???

cheers!

Hi Mel
no I'm not.  This one isn't badly damaged either - thank goodness.  It has two tiny chips one on the lid one on the bowl. I have another box that has more chips.  These are rare to find and they often have small chips on presumably because they are heavy, the lids are easily dropped onto the bases and the glass has 'seams and edges' which make them more susceptible to being chipped.  I have another piece that is perfect but it's a different shape, a perfume -
see below
