This rare, beautiful vintage candy dish is in the modernist Bird Cage design by the influential Raymond Loewy, whose bird cage china was produced by Rosenthal Continental from 1963 to 1964. This set includes a rounded diamond-shape dish with a turquoise lid featuring three abstract bird cages with red, blue, and yellow birds inside. Fitting inside this dish are two small rectangular dishes, also featuring a bird cage.

This same design was featured on Rosenthal china, but I haven't seen anything like this set. The glaze is textured, with a white overlay like snow, reminiscent of the Fat Lava ceramics from Germany. It has gold accents on the handle, around the rim, and around the bottom of the box. Both the lid and the smaller saucers have fluted indentations around the edges.

Raymond Loewy was one of the most prolific and influential 20th century industrial designers, with a career spanning seven decades. His designs ranged from the iconic Shell and Greyhound Bus logos; to a streamlined pencil sharpener; to cars, refrigerators, and trains.

This piece is unsigned. It is in very good condition. There are two short hairline cracks on the inside rim of the lid (not visible from the top of the lid). They don't affect the beauty or structure of the piece, though I'd be careful with it.

Size: The lidded dish is about 8 x 5 1/2 x 3 inches (20 x 14 x 7.5 cm). The small dishes are 3 3/8 x 2 1/2 inches (8.5 x 6.3 cm)
