This beautifully hand-painted, three-piece, earthenware tea caddy measures 6 inches high, 4 1/2 inches wide. It is signed inside the lid in red, however we were unable to decipher the symbols. There is a corresponding portion of the mark on the outer rim of the jar, indicating that the pieces were always together. The form and decoration resemble several others known to be from the early 20th century, up to the end of the Meiji period, or 1912. The condition is very good. There are two tiny chips on the rim of the lid--one old and one recent. Otherwise, there are no other chips, no cracks, and no repairs. There is very light crazing consistent with age and material. The designs are striking, and colorful, with two figures repeated on both sides of the jar.
