An antique porcelain cracker jar that depicts a detailed stagecoach scene on the front. There are four horses harnessed to a very full stagecoach of passengers. The background buildings suggest an English town or estate. Notice the period clothing on the passengers and the wonderful hats on the women. The rim of the jar is a dark teal in color and the rest of the body and lid are white.
One hallmark is from the Bawo & Dotter Company, which had a porcelain factory in Carlsbad Austria. The other mark is from P.H. Leonard Company who imported decorated porcelain from the Bawo & Dotter Company into the U.S. Having both marks narrows the time frame for manufacture of this piece to c. 1891-1908.
Measuring just over 6 inches high with the lid with the top largest part of jar measuring 16 1/4 inches in circumference we find this to be in beautiful antique condition with just a bit of wear to the enameling on the lid rim. There are absolutely no chips, cracks nor hairlines.
