This is a Nippon condiment jar in white porcelain, hand painted in pale cream or yellow and gold accents. There are swags of gold roses and a feather or fern design on the rims. The paint is faded on the rim of the base of the dish, it is much brighter and more complete on the lid and top of the dish. The backstamp is blue and reads Hand Painted Nippon. Nippon marked pieces were made between 1891-1921. The dish is intended for mayonnaise, jam, jelly, mustard, or another condiment of your choice. It is 4" tall. All three pieces to the set (dish, lid, spoon) are in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. The only flaw is the fading to the paint on the bottom rim.
