This is a very colorful mustard jar or jam pot made in Japan in the 1920s. The jar is handpainted. You can see where the painter got some of the blue paint over the baseline and onto the white area of the jar. Vibrant blue trim on a white background with turquoise leaves decorate the base of the jar. The lid is a colorful array of vegetables and green leaves. It is slotted for a spoon. The jar is 3.5 inches tall to the finial which is shaped like an ear of corn. It is 3 inches across the opening. "Made in Japan" is printed in plain text without any company marks. The red lettering indicate the pot was made in the 1920s. There are no chips or cracks.
