|We dedicate this page to our Dear Departed Friend Devero Martin
who was the King of Honey Dishes and a wonderful friend who
taught us all we ever wanted to know about Honey Dishes .
This Store includes Three Sections:
1) Tiny little dishes made mostly in flint glass - 1840s-1860s.
2) Dishes with lids & flat bottoms to hold the comb,
3) Some miscellaneous rare honey dishes
Early in the pressed pattern glass world, some companies called
their small dishes, 'honey' dishes. Mostly these were + or - 3" in diameter.
Around the turn of the 20th century, a few pattern glass companies
began to manufacture a dish with a flat bottom specifically
for holding a piece of cut honeycomb.
