Oriental Candy dish

I found this at the thrift store Friday. I loved it for several reasons...the bright colored sections that come out and can be washed, and the fact that the whole thing turns like a lazy susan. The bottom is red plastic and the top is clear with little oriental people on it. I don't think it's that old, but it fits in! If I don't want it for a candy dish, I could use it for jewelry.. My first purchase for a while! I also got a great vintage table cloth, Christmas, for around 50 cents..everything Christmas was marked down.
Can't wait to see all the new year's finds, and can't wait to find my own! Zootsuitmama

A few years ago I noticed that vintage oriental stuff could be bought for a song! I guess back in the mid-century, the orient still held mystery and such, so it was popular. (My original hanging kitchen light is shaped like a pagoda).

But now, when people decorate mid-century, they want "american", or scandinavian/danish, so oriental things sell for really affordable prices!

Love the dish!
