Unique Mold. New style for the collector of HONs.

About Me Practical
Comments about Amethyst Glass Hen Candy Dish:
I am an avid Hen-On-a-Nest collector. I bought four of these same-model, different-colours hens from Miles Kimball. These 4, added to my current collection, brings the total HONs I own to 117.Yes, you read that right: I have 117 HONs out on display at my house. I say this to let you know I am a HON aficionado. SO take my word when I say you will not be disappointed with this style HON.As with any collectible, I recommend NOT putting it in the dishwasher. I do not have a dishwasher anyway, but I definitely would not put an item I so cherish into the dishwasher. PLUS there is a 'made in Taiwan' sticker on the bottom. Us collectors know how important keeping those stickers intact are.This is a very nice colour for the style of HON. It is split-tail, turned head model. As I said in the other reviews, this is a different type of split-tail than we are use to. The old hens with split-tail usually have a V-shaped split. These are more curved and the split is narrower. I attached a photo of the tail. This is a unique tail that does not match any other old brands of HONs I have. In other words, this mold is unique for the modern collector. You are not buying a 'remake' of an earlier label. I know most people think they want only the old HONs because all the modern ones are simply old molds being reused, but this mold is unique to this manufacturer. As far as I can tell (from my vast collection and knowledge of the history of HONs) this mold has never been used before. The tail is what makes it unique.I find no issues with this HON.And packaging was SUPERB. The HON comes packed with two solid styrofoam inserts molded specifically for the HON for safe travel. Kiimballs had three (3) other HONs that I bought along with this.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
