This Jar began its life in Jingdezhen China where it was thrown from the best Chinese Porcelain by an independant craftsman. I purchased it, and brought it home to finish. I hand painted the designs on it and fired it in the June Firing of the Soda Kiln. It is almost 11 inches tall and 9.5 inches wide. It will hold a 2 or 3 dozen cookies easy. Shipping and taxes not included in price.
