L. E. Smith Carrie Candy Dish
Tom Felt, author of the book, "L. E. Smith Glass Company, The First Hundred Years" says "The "Carrie" powder jar can definitely be attributed to L. E. Smith. A drawing of this piece, submitted by L. E. Smith on January 27, 1937, exists in the files of the National Association of Manufacturers of Pressed and Blown Glassware. My new book on Smith also pictures it with a distinctive floral decoration that can be attributed to Smith. The actual manufacture of this piece may have been by the Greensburg Glass Company, which was operated as Smith's factory no. 2, in the 1930s."

Figural stem on tall candy or powder box. Box has been attributed to L. E. Smith and collectors have dubbed it Carrie.
