Japanese Nippon Tea Caddy Jar Hand Painted Sunset Sailing Ships c 1891 - image 1 of 10

033017-4/RL-1063

This is a Japanese Nippon hand painted tea caddy jar with an interior lid and an exterior lid. The mark is a blue maple leaf that dates to the jar to circa 1891.

The jar is 4 ½” to the mouth and 5 ¼” high to the top of the lid. It is 3 ¼” wide.

The jar has four side and a round lid.

The tea caddy is entirely hand painted. The decoration is one of different sailing sloops on water against sunset colors, with grass and flowers in the foreground. There are green bands painted at the bottom, the top and around both lids. Each green band has a line of raised beads. The lid has the v-shape of flying birds against the sunset colors.

One side of the jar has a small area of faded colors. There are some dimples in the porcelain, which were painted over. There is some estate residue that I didn’t quite clean off. There is a little bit of missing color from the green band around the bottom. There are no nicks, chips, cracks or crazing.

The blue mark is a maple leaf with the word Nippon below the leaf and the words Hand Painted to the right of the leaf.
