Fostoria | American | 3-Part Candy Box and CoverThe 3-Part Candy Box and Cover is one of my favorite pieces in the American line.  The Box and Cover is six-sided, which makes for an unusual and visually appealing candy server.

With the cover attached, the height of the 3-Part Candy Box is approximately 4″, with a width of about 6⅛”.  These measurements can vary, and there are some published books that document the width at 7″.  Actual Fostoria catalogs state the width at 6⅛”, which is what my personal 3-Part Candy Box and Cover measures in at.  Just remember that these items were handmade; hence, slight fluctuations in measurements are to be expected.

The 3-Part Candy Box and Cover first appeared around 1937, and even though it was in production until the early 1970’s, there were other candy dishes in the American pattern that were produced for longer periods of time.  Because of the unique design of the 3-Part Candy Box, and the fact that it had fewer years in production than most other American candy dishes, this piece is a nice find.

Many times you will find just the bottom dish, with no cover.  As with all the pieces that had covers or lids, you need to make sure the edges of those pieces are not nicked or crushed before purchasing.
