This is a Japanese Nippon hard paste porcelain humidor jar or pot with a lid, hand painted. 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.

This humidor has six sides. It is 6 ¾” high and 5 ½” wide.

The jar or pot is bisque and hand painted with a rural scene that shows vibrant colors of orange and yellow in the trees and on the water, so perhaps it is sunset. The front shows a creek with trees on either side. On the back the water is wider, so perhaps it flowed into a small lake. There is green foliage, mountains in the distance and a colorful sky.

The lid is painted in the same colors. The top of the finial has a design in raised enamel.

The inside and underside are glazed white.

There is a little bit of wear to the raised enamel design

There are no chips, nicks, cracks or crazing.

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

This is an original Nippon humidor.
