Hen on a Nest

Hen on Nest candy dishes became popularized in the late 19th century. They were initially created by various glass manufacturers, including Westmoreland Glass Company, Indiana Glass Company, and Atterbury Glass Company.

The dishes were often made of pressed glass and featured a hen sitting on a nest-shaped base, with the nest serving as a container for candy or other treats. These charming and decorative dishes became popular as both functional and decorative pieces in Victorian households.

What do you think?  Should these make a come-back?
