    Hello glass wizards :) - it was recommended I post this dish I found today in this forum. Maybe someone knows something about this piece?

    Pulled this out of thrift store today not sure if it's anything to look twice at but I liked it so I bought it for 2 bucks.
    black glass dish - 3 footed - hexagon shape at top...tapers to a point at the bottom - almost completely opaque but a very bright flashlight held up to it does show a little dark purplish light. Some gold painting that is mostly gone ...and a pharoah/sphinx face as the finial on the lid... unfortunately his nose is nicked off on one side.

    About 5" in diameter at the widest - and about 5" tall.

    Is this art nouveau egyptian revival era - or a modern repro/take on it?

    It wasn't really Egyptian revival, but in the 1920s, with the discovery of King Tut's tomb, a lot of design elements from Egypt were adapted in European and American wares. This covered dish is one of them. I do not know the manufacturer.
