VINTAGE MOLDED CARD BOARD CHRISTMAS CANDY DISH

Vintage, molded cardboard candy dish, made in Germany. It measures 11 1/2", 1 3/4" deep.

I find this fascinating, I'd love to know how it was made, I'm guessing it is made of sheets of plain paper, was dampened and then molded, then after so many layers have been built up, a final sheet of  bright images is placed on top and once dried, varnished on both sides for extra strength and protection - at least that's how I would do it!  Ah well, in some ways it doesn't matter as either way it's beautiful!

It's also given me an idea, I think perhaps I have found a use for my Christmas Cards, this year!
