This is a gorgeous jasperware covered humidor or biscuit jar made by Adams in England in the 19th century. Similar in style to Wedgwood, it measures 6 1/2 inches high. The scene depicts classical figures in bas relief, with a garland around the bottom of the jar. The lid has a finial with floral relief work on top surrounded by petals and vines in bas relief. Impressed on the bottom are the words Adams England and some numbers which I cannot make out.
The condition is good for its age except for a tiny flake on the inside top rim. It does not distract from the overall beauty of this piece, but is noted for accuracy. This can be see in the last photo.
