This very handsome porcelain covered evaporated milk holder was made by Noritake/Nippon for the china-painting trade.  The under plate is not marked, except for the artist's signature 'Hotis'. The covered jar measures 5.5" high by 5.5" across the handles by 3.75" in diameter.  The under plate measures 6" in diameter. It has a handsome high-sided jar form with a handled lid. This jar was designed to hold an evaporated milk can, having a hole in the bottom to push the can out when used up, who knew!  It is decorated in a beautiful grapes and leaves motif, in a truly Arts & Crafts design. The artist used rich colors, which are finished in a satin semi-gloss sheen. It is signed by the artist only on the under plate, which matches the covered jar motif perfectly, so this was intended as a set. The base of the jar is marked Noritake/Nippon. This set is in original condition, no apologies. The jar, lid and plate are nicely gilded in a beautiful presentation. If you appreciate china-painted wares, you just found a keeper, it's beautiful!
