I believe this small vintage dish was originally given as a Christmas card, in a small box with a "From/To" address blank. You can repackage it similarly as a card or gift, display it as a decoration, or use it as a nut dish or change / trinket tray. The smoky gray glass is printed with a rosy-cheeked Santa smoking a long pipe and the words, "Wishing you a cool yule and a frantic first." (I'm all for a "cool yule," but I don't know about a "frantic first." Maybe that sounds great to someone else, though.)

The tray measures about 3.75" by 4.75" and is etched "Houze Glass Corporation - Point Marion, PA" in small letters on the reverse. It dates to the 1950's or early 60's. There's a little wear to the metallic gold stem of Santa's pipe and one of his eyes. Otherwise, the condition is great with no chips or breaks and very little wear on the bottom.

Combined Shipping: I’m happy to ship multiple purchases together to lower shipping costs, but I don’t pre-enter a combined amount as I prefer to figure it based on packed weight (it’s usually cheaper that way). If you’d like to know the cost to ship specific items together, just convo me. Combined shipping will always be less than shipping items separately.

International Shipping: Costs may be lower to your country. Feel free to convo me for exact rates.
