CHINESE FAMILLE ROSE TEA CADDY
SOLD, Thanks

This hand painted Chinese Famille Rose tea caddy is 5 ¼” high and 3 ½” wide from the widest part. It depicts a black mynah resting on a branch of peach blossoms. A few willow tree branches are behind the bird. The date on the side of the tea caddy is March, 1934. There are four characters on the cover “(tea) can cleanse mind and heart”. The six red stamped characters on the bottom mean “Jiang Xi (province), Ceramic Industry Co.” The four characters on the side of the jar mean “spring winds bring satisfaction.” Aside from some brown spots on the bottom and one rough spot on the rim due to firing, it is in very good condition.
