ITEM # 091645 (Box-2)
Antique Art Nouveau Victorian 1800's biscuit jar with metal lid and handle. Very pretty pastel violets floral transferware with a background shading from a pale pink to pale yellow. No makers mark but has all the traits of early Doulton.
Jar measures 10" to the top of the handle when standing up. The jar itself measures approx 6" in diameter and stands 5 1/2" tall.
Very good antique condition with typical wear due to age and handling. The gold gilding on the base is in near mint condition and is still very shiny. The transferware is in excellent condition and appears to be 99% intact. No chips, cracks or staining. Upon close examination you will see slight crazing throughout, which is to be expected with a piece this age. The lid is plated and does show wear, but has a beautiful Art Nouveau scroll work design. The handle is a twisted rope.
PLEASE let me know if you need any additional photos or information before purchasing, as I sell antique / vintage items.
