This candy dish has been through our family for at least three generations.
I first remember it at my grandparents house. The trick with this dish I think is the v-cut around the edges. It is impossible to get the candy without making noise. No matter how carefully you try to remove or replace the top it clinks, alerting everyone to your candy thieving. So if you are an adult, I recommend purchasing one. If you are a child, perhaps this is the dish that you want to carry with greasy fingers.
It was amazing to see this Christmas Eve to see yet another generation trying to sneak their way into it.
