An antique T&V France porcelain tea caddy or biscuit jar that is signed on the bottom X' mas 1894, SCR. Also bears the T & V France logo along with Pat. April 2d, 89. This jar is hand-painted with delicate pink/white flowers and green vines/leaves. The corners on the top of jar bottom are in a shell design and painted in gold. The lid handle also shows a shell design on each end and is painted in gold. There are also pink flowers and greens on top of lid. In wonderful antique condition (for being around 120yrs. old) having no nicks, chips, cracks or crazing. Light wear to gold paint on the corners and handle, but very light wear. The outside of jar feels like bisque, having no glaze, but, the inside is glazed and shiny. Measures 5-1/2" tall from bottom to top of handle and 4-1/2" wide . Just a real jewel.
