This item is a biscuit or cracker jar bottom marked with an "R" and "S" inside a wreath with a star above and "GERMANY" below it done in green. The piece is 5 3/4" tall with the cover on, 8" across the handles, by 6" across the tips of the six sided bottom. The decoration consists of open peach colored rose blossoms surrounded with leaves and sweeping thorny stems. The handle tops are decorated with the same motif with gold accents on the finial, handles, top rim, and lower edge. The gold decoration around the top rim has a geometric design worked into it. The handles show wear from use, but the floral decoration is sharp and unworn with no chips, cracks, flakes, or touch ups. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or to make an offer.
