Pretty as you please, this late 19th century lusterware trinket vanity Jar is the precursor to the later elfinware. Lusterware was very popular in the 19th century. This jar is marked Germany, later elfinware pieces are marked Made in Germany.
Elfinware evolved in the 1920s through the 1940s. The vanity jar has the lovely applied relief flowers that are so fragile. I found no damage to any of the flowers or the leaves, the vanity jar is in awesome condition. It came from the estate of an antique dealer. Measurements: 4.5" diameter by 3.5" high
