This versatile piece can be used for so many things.  You can keep cookies or biscuits on a counter or remove the lid and use it as a vase. The lid can be placed upside and used as a bowl.
Recognized by the blue lattice border surrounding a variety of landscape scenes, the popular Blue Canton pattern is true to the original Chinese export ware. The temple jar is an imposing and interesting decorative object.

The most fashionable homes in the early American Republic were set with blue and white ‘’Canton’’ or ‘'Nanking’’ wares, named for the great Chinese trading ports from which they came. Chinese blue and white porcelain was in demand in this country well into the nineteenth century and has become a part of the heritage of many American families. Blue Canton faithfully recaptures this centuries-old tradition and taste. Licensed product of Historic Charleston.
