KIG / Fleur-de-Lis Candy Dishes

Although this blog focuses on glass manufactured in North-East England I have decided to include a small piece on these KIG Fleur-de-Lis candy dishes. My reasoning for doing so is because I have often noticed them popping up for sale online, being described as Victorian. Quite frequently they are attributed to Greener & Co., possibly because of the use of the dots as part of the design. However, these dishes are far more modern in origin.

KIG, Kedaung Industrial Group was founded by Mr Agus Nursalim in 1969, with the aim to supply the Indonesian market with glass and tableware. 1 It is still in operation and markets its products worldwide, to 132 countries 2 and has over 10,000 employees. 1

KIG is an unconsolidated federation of more than 30 companies, operating mainly out of Indonesia, 2 but also Malaysia.
