Candy containers are fun to collect as they are usually smaller versions of everyday items. This container is in the shape of a lantern and has a metal lid with shaker holes and a carrying handle. Measures larger than a salt shaker at about 4 1/2" not counting the handle. With bubbles in the glass this glass collectible is probably from the beginning of the 20th century. The metal lid has some slight denting but for it's age, it is in good condition.
