How terribly kitsch is this Fire-King snack dish? Personally I think it’s great, and I just love the blue glass, but if I didn’t know the make (and if I hadn’t researched it before) I’d be very surprised to find out that it came from Mid-century America – it looks far more Eastern to me! Although that being said I do have some vague memory of seeing a similar piece in some ’50s styled movie…..

The gold trim is slightly worn, but even that’s not in terrible nick, and the glass itself seems to be completely free from wear. A wonderfully over-the-top relish dish that will make the ideal serving plate for some crunchy crudites and home-made dip.

Dimensions: 28cm long x 19cm wide x 3.5cm high
