Vintage White Ceramic Turkey Bird Candy Dish Covered Dish
Gratitude bestows reverence... changing forever how we experience life and the world. John Milton
If you wanted to add a little bit of handpainted flair to your holiday table during the late 20th century, you selected a piece like this - Tom Turkey - the star of the show, the king of Thanksgiving. Exquisite in detail, these Tom Turkeys are fun to collect because they come in a wide variety of color palettes, each handpainted in their own unique color combinations from bright orange to natural beige, each one takes on its own cute character. We love this guy for his classic minimalist red and white go-with-anything color scheme.
His covered dish purpose most likely was intended to hold candy, but around here we have another fun idea for him too... a thankful jar... where you can add little notes of gratitude regarding things you are thankful for. Collect a batch and share them with family and friends on the big day of Thanksgiving or celebrate gratitude year-round and keep track of the joy from month to month.
Either way, Tom Turkey is happy with your choices. How do we do know, you ask? If you take special note when looking at this handsome bird straight on, the red-painted areas take the form of an exclamation mark. That's how we know Tom is full of nothing but joy inside and out!
