This is a mint condition piece from mid century. It is bright orange with white gray and green motif of cherry blossoms and 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 inches tall with the lid on and 6 1/4 inch 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! It is in gift giving condition. Would make a wonderful centerpiece for a table.
