Potpourri Jar

Mary showed a bowl yesterday and the style of it reminded me of this potpourri jar that I have. The little figures are so intriguing. What do you suppose they are doing? My MIL gave me this jar years ago and I have no idea when or where it was made. There are no marks on the bottom and it is about 7" tall. Perhaps one of you know something about it?

These men appear to be rolling out a scroll.

It is made of thin porcelain and I like how the sun shines through it.

I think these ladies are flirting with those men.

So what do you think; valuable antique or Victorian era reproduction?

Antique or reproduction, it's beautiful either way!

This is a lovely piece!

I have no idea either way. But it is sure pretty.

Oh my gosh.

I just LOVE that piece! Where do you have it displayed?
