What is it?

I purchased this a few weeks ago at Goodwill. Isn't it cute? Such a darn shame I have no clue what it is. Ü

3 reasons why I bought it:

1.) It's white.
2.) It's from Crate & Barrel.
3.) It was only $1.50.

Dimensions: Approx. 3 1/2" wide by approx. 3" tall. Or vise versa if you flip it a little. Ü

But what is it?

Dear Melissa:
I am supposed to be cleaning my house, but am I doing that? No. Instead I am playing super sleuth checking the Crate & Barrel website and then ebay and amazon when C&B turned up nothing. Apparently I suck at being a super sleuth because I know exactly what I did when I started...nada.

Let's just say that you totally rocked Goodwill and are the proud owner of a really cool thingamabob...cause I really need to mop this floor, dang it, but you posted a blog mystery on my day off, and now it will bother me until I figure it out... ;)

By the way, I love whatever it is ;)

Sincerely yours,
Not a Good Private Detective

It's a serving dish. You use the three different sections to seperate picky items such as nuts, cheeses,crackers, dips, olives etc. At first the shape of it threw me off, but after looking into the other three section serving platters that C&B makes, it was evident that this was from their serving platter line.

Wait....I may have to retract my comment. Did you say it's only 3 1/2 inches long? It looks big in the picture. If it's that little, then I have no flippin clue what it might be....unless it's an appetizer dish for oompa loompas LOL!

It is a nut/pickle/candy tray. Crate and Barrel also has another one that goes with it that is round and is an olive tray. I know this because I bought both for my friend as a wedding gift a few years back, lol. -kriss

Looks like an olive tray to me. It's adorable!

I say put colored stones in it for decoration.
