This is a trinket dish or candy dish designed by "Zoei". It is a copyrighted piece. Sold by Spencer Gifts, probably back in the '70's or '80's. It did have a sticker on the inside from Spencer Gifts at $49.95 but it washed off. I was unable to salvage it.
The dish is made of a resin or plastic, fairly heavy, cream in color. The shape is rounded with a design all around and sits on a metal looking base (I think it is also a resin material). Measurements are approximately 8 1/2" X 6 1/2" across. This is measuring to the tip of the wings. Bottom has a protective material to keep from scratching. It is a little discolored around the edges. Sticker has "Zoei Copyright".
The gargoyle is sitting on top of the lid with golden, almost transparent, wings. I believe this also to be made out of a resin type material. It looks like metal but it isn't cool to the touch as metal would be. The gargoyle is actually the handle and is screwed onto the lid.
This is an awesome vintage gothic piece for display!!
