Victorian Amber Glass "Mary Gregory" Motif Covered Candy Jar

Mary Gregory motif decorated glass is easily recognized by its simplicity and naive charm. The painted designs consist of children, typically Victorian, at play usually surrounded by grass, foliage or ferns. The scenes are quite similar to the illustrations of Kate Greenaway of England.

This lovely covered candy or other purpose jar is a pleasing amber shade with white hand-painted enamel decoration, circa 1900-1920. The scene depicts a long girl running through the grass chasing a butterfly. The scene is framed by a large flowing tree and fern foliage. The jar and lid are enhanced by several gold bands highlighting the contoured shape and finial. Probably produced and decorated by a European glass house. The jar measures 9 1/2" in height and 4 1/2" across the base. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; some minor gold wear.
