This is a Japanese Nippon hard paste porcelain humidor jar or pot with a lid. The date is circa 1910.

A humidor jar was originally intended as a decorative holder for tobacco. However over the years my customers have told me they use such jars for cookies, crackers, biscuits and even the prescription medical green dried herb as they love these antique containers but none of them smoke tobacco.

The jar is 5” high to the top of the knob, or finial, and it is 5” wide at the body.

In a wide glazed band around the middle, the front shows the heads of two horses wearing halters. The scene continues around all sides of the jar and shows trees, foliage, mountains and sky.

Above and below the band the design is mottled brown, edged in dark brown enamel. The top of the lid has a design in raised brown enamel.

There is minimal wear. There are no chips, nicks or cracks. The bottom is bisque, or unglazed, and there is a raised mold line going from one corner to the opposing corner.

This is an original Nippon jar.

The green mark is M in the wreath with Hand Painted above and Nippon below.
