This gorgeous American Satsuma china-painted decorated Covered jar stands 3.5" high by 3" in diameter. It has a hexagonal covered jar form. It is decorated with blue Daisy-like blossoms and green leaves over a white ceramic body, in a distinctly nice Arts & Crafts presentation, and framed beautifully in a gilded line all around. This is a beautiful jar! It is unmarked, but likely a Satsuma blank, made specifically for china painters. Many companies sold their white porcelain-like ware to china-painters at the turn of the last century. 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 on this jar. This jar is in factory original condition, with normal handling wear and essentially no apologies. Any shadow marks are from camera glare, this china-painted jar makes a simply stunning presentation!
