This lidded porcelain biscuit or cracker jar was manufactured during the first quarter of the 20th century. The pretty container is decorated with a spray of flowers that includes blue cosmos against a white background on the front of the biscuit jar, and a tiny bouquet of the same flowers on the back. The barrel shaped jar is basically white white with shells and scrolls in relief. The gold trim on the rim edge is somewhat worn, but the jar has no chips, cracks or repairs. It stands 5-3/4" high without the lid, 7-3/4" tall with the lid in place. The bottom is 4" diameter with an opening of 3". It is in very nice condition. The biscuit or cracker jar had a place in many Edwardian homes to hold the cookies or treats that were eaten when tea arrived at 4:00 PM. Thank you for visiting.
