This lovely blue handmade porcelain piece is covered with a material known as "sharkskin"; adorned with a ribbon in relief and and shiny white drip glaze painted with what appear to be small blue and red mon. It is hand-painted in the other areas as well, and has flowers, bird, butterfly and note on the side of the lip of the jar. This is a very rare and wonderful find.
