Philosophical Yin & Yang, Biomorphism, or Cool Dish. You make the call.

The center of the Korean flag, the symbol for Yin and Yang, Bio-morphism. All of that is outside of  my of particular education. I'm a simple man. I have simple tastes. And I break things down into the simplest terms.

The shape of the object below could be interpreted in any number of ways. But here in Dave's world of mid century madness this is just a cool candy dish. With a lid.

Yin and Yang? Temporary lodging for Milk Duds? You make the call.

First off, it's Royal Haeger.

Ooooh. Aaaah.

Royalty in the House of Dave. This item is so unusual in that it still has its lid, I can't find another one like it in the usual places. Oh, I'm sure somebody somewhere has one, but I'll bet there aren't many.

Odd. I just had a thought. What if the lid doesn't belong to this bottom. Suppose somewhere there is another blogger blogging about his big ol' Royal Haeger find with both a bottom and a top, but his is white on the bottom with a black top. It boggles the mind. I better stop. Enjoy my newest treasure. I am.

So does this lid go with this dish?

Black glossy bottom, white textured top. Who knows?

On the plus side, it still has its green felt feet.

Fits like a glove. Not like O.J.'s glove, but like a glove that really fits.

Round knobs on the bottom, round knob on the top. Coincidence? I don't know!

They sure look good together don't they?

If you were a Milk Dud this is what you'd see if you looked up.

And if you were still a Milk Dud, this would be your living room. Until I ate you!

Hey, look! There Dave's TV lamp project in the background.

Even without a lid this would have a good find. With a lid it's a great find.

Okay, any of you ceramics, or Royal Haeger experts want to burst my bubble now's the time. Is this one set or parts of two sets. Inquiring minds want to know.

We'll be right back with . . . more stuff.


  1. Love the dish...but don't know the answer to your question.

  2. I don't know why but I like it and if you like it that's all that counts.
