This item is a porcelain ring jar marked inside the cover, "Hand Painted, NIPPON" with a rising sun done in blue. The jar is 1 1/4" tall with the domed cover on, 1 7/8" cover diameter, by 1 3/4" across the body of the piece. The base is a solid pastel blue with a dry bottom. The cover has a gold stripe on the rim with a group of forget me nots with green leaves and stems surrounding the blooms. The gold has some wear from use, but there are no chips, cracks, wear to the central decoration, or repairs. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or to make an offer.
