Portieux or European Covered Jar for Fruit Preserve - Blue Opaline

From my research this covered jar is known as articles for pastry chefs and confectioners and was used for conserves, meaning for storage of whole fruit preserves. Examples of these covered jar can be seen on page 113 of the 1933 Portieux catalog. To be honest I thought these were for dresser table to hold cotton balls, but my research shows that these covered jars were used for whole fruit preserves. I do believe this was made by Portieux but could be another french manufacturer - such as Vallerysthal. However, if anyone knows the maker I would appreciate hearing from you.

The bocal couvert (covered jar) is about 9 inches tall with the cover. No imperfection that I can see. Any questions, please email me.
