This would be a great little set to have on display and use in the kitchen! These are very wonderful and nicely done pieces of faience was hand painted with colors of cobalt blue, red, green and yellow on a white background. There are flowers, insects, as well as flower filled horns or cornucopia decorating this piece. The jar lid is not a snug fit,may have been add later. The jar looks great with or without the lid. These are truly fine antique pieces of art pottery that is of France origin.
