This is a wonderful Mid- Century Modern art pottery three- section relish or pickle dish. It would also be perfect for candy or nuts. I believe it dates from the 1940s-50s.
The design is reminiscent of a UFO or an old Gotham City airplane propeller. It is hot pink with white speckles, and has three tiny feet on the bottom. Underneath, it says "Petite Suzette Jacquin Ceramics, Inc." I think the name means it's supposed to be a small version of a Lazy Susan, which was so popular for serving back then.
The piece measures approximately 8 1/2 inches in diameter and 1 3/4 inches high. It has some crazing to be expected in pieces of this age. There is a small 1/8 inch glaze flake on one of the feet on the bottom. There are no chips, cracks, hairlines, or other issues. The color is vivid and unfaded and there is a nice high glaze. I would consider it to be in near-mint condition. A cool accent for your retro kitchen!
