This is a mint condition piece from mid century. It is bright orange with white gray and green motif of cherry blossoms & white inside. The color is orange not red. The photos do not do justice for this piece. It is two pieces, a jar or canister and a lid with a pointed handle. It is in excellent, gorgeous condition. The piece measures 9" tall with the lid on and 6 1/4" diameter. The lid fits very well and there are no flaws. The bottom of the ceramic jar is marked Italy 97/1197. The inside is a high glaze as is the outside. The branches of blossoms are applied and very textured. What a beauty!
