This gorgeous Lenox Belleek china-painted decorated covered jar stands a demure 1.5" high by 2.5" in diameter. It has a simple lidded jar form. It is decorated with a garland of blossoms and berries in a distinctly nice Art Deco presentation. The blossoms are multi-colored, dominated in oranges and blues. The mark dates this jar to circa 1889-1906. Lenox sold their white porcelain ware to china-painters at the turn of the last century, and beyond. Many women, mostly homemakers, were buying items to decorate in women's groups, or simply to work on at home in their leisure time. Some pieces are very ornate, some pretty, pretty decorative objects, such as this one. The styles varied from an Arts & Crafts motif, sometimes transitioning to more of an Art Deco style. Oftentimes, the women would initial their work, but there are no marks, except for the Lenox mark on this jar. It is glazed in a ground of pure porcelain white, with very complementary colors in the decoration, just beautiful. This impressive lidded jar is marked with the Lenox Belleek green logo on the bottom. It is in factory original condition, no apologies. Any shadow marks are from camera glare, this china-painted jar makes a simply stunning presentation!
