Darling Victorian era biscuit jar or cracker barrel produced in milk glass circa 1800's. This beautiful jar has raised decorations with painted gold gilt details to the flowers. A similar jar is shown and descibed on page 99 in Ettinger: Antique Dresser Sets; 1890-1950s. This is a very rare piece, measuring 5" high and 4 1/2" in diameter. The texture on the lid is more matte in finish than the body giving it even more interest. A very nice antique jar for your collection.
