This is a Lefton China Egg Candy Dish or Trinket Container with lid. On the bottom it shows the year 1963 and has the Lefton sticker, red and gold, as well as the gold "Hand Painted" wording. There is some slight fading of the colors on the egg due to age, but there are no chips or cracks.There is one extremely small black spot inside the base. This could be a rust spot due to iron residue that moves slowly to the surface of the ceramic body over a long period of time. It is 5 1/2 inches in length and 5 inches in height.
