Lovely set of Blue stars and moons pattern candy dishes.

Continuing my blue Sunday theme. I have finally located the pattern design of these. These are from the LE Smith Moon and Stars Pattern. This pattern is a great historical piece. The original design dating back to the 1800's (at that time it was called the palace design,) and was rumored to be the favorite glassware of Abraham Lincoln. 

It was then reproduced by LE Smith in the 1930's. This is when the pattern truly became popular. These bowls date from this period.
