This handsome and very decorative money jar was produced in Staffordshire, England during the 19th century circa 1860. Earthenware money jars such as this, once full of coins had to smashed open to reveal their contents. This wonderful and very tactile beehive money jar was manufactured by Pearsons & Co in Chesterfield. The stoneware jar features applied sprigged decoration and the impressed mark reading ‘D. Pearson’. This is a unique item, few money jars survived as they were often smashed when in need of their precious funds, also Pearson's did not produce that many and each of them was different.

Please see our collection of English folk art 19th century money boxes listed separately in our store; a grouping makes for a gorgeous display.

Measuring: Diameter 3 3/8 inch (8.5 cm) by height 6.75 inch (17 cm).

Condition: Small very old chip to money slot hole, general age crazing to the glaze.
