This MidCentury Modern Christmas Tree Candy dish is the best! The dish is NEWLY MADE from an actual vintage pottery plaster mold that I have been casting from. The original vintage plaster mold was made in the 1950-1960s. This is a NEW dish, from an authentic, vintage mold! Reminiscent of childhood. I have a limited amount of these amazing dishes for the Holiday season. The tree shape is divided for separated candy or nut presentation. The glaze is lighter at the ridges, making it appear as the tree is decorated in garland.
I chose glazes that are reminiscent of the era:
The Emerald City Green is a rich, deep turquoise green matte glaze with a melting gloss glaze at the edges of the dish. This effect is just beautiful where the glazes combine, and causes the edges to appear lighter where the clay shows through, mimicking a garland.
The Speckled Green glaze reminds me of glazes of the 60's and 70's, with its soft speckles throughout. Again the ridges shine lighter, creating the look of a garland.
The Deep Green Matte is reminiscent of the style of Roseville Pottery with their matte glazes, true American classics.
Hematite is a truly mirror like finish in a dark silver glaze. (handwash only to preserve the shine)
The teal matches my teal MidMod mugs perfectly for a wonderful Mid Century themed set.
