This 3 3/4" high pot was meant to be just a shipping pot, for sending dried foods, herbs, spices, etc. from China to the workers in the U.S. in the late 1800's. The workers missed the taste of home, and shipping food to them solved a problem. When the pots arrived, the workers found that these temporary shipping containers were sturdy and useful for their challenging conditions, and kept them! The pot is 1 3/4" across the open top, 3 1/8" across the base and 4 1/2" across the widest point. The color is dark green, as most of these pots were at the time. Add a bit of history to your Asian pottery collection and enjoy telling the younger generation about the gold rush and railroad workers of the late 1800's. I will combine orders for discount and shipping savings. Please email me with any questions you may have and thank-you for shopping here at Something Wonderful.
