a little transfer ware biscuit jar

 
 
Maybe once a season I find something special to add to my transfer ware collection. This time it's a little antique biscuit jar.
 
 

 
I enjoy the geometric and nature themed details of the Aesthetic Movement era. And the colors are nice for fall.
 
 
 







 
Love the birds! The scenes on both sides are the same.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
This was yet another of my thrifty finds from last week. I found it tucked into a locked cabinet, and feared it might be a little dear. But I made it mine for 6.95. You never know . . . .





 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 




 
 
 
 
 
 
If you care to, you can determine its precise age from the maker's mark.





 
I'm tempted to stow some little shortbread cookies in it and tuck it on my dresser like the ladies of  Downton. But they probably wouldn't munch them all in one day!  *smile*
 
    
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 




 
 
 




 
Hope you're having a great day!
 Thanks for stopping by!

Good Morning,
I love waking up to your cheery posts, and what is more cheery than those little birds!!! So darling, I love all birdie china, and never find it, haha! I think the corsets keep them from eating the whole jar of cookies in a day :-)
Hugs,
Bella

Oh my goodness, Jacqueline, that it absolutely gorgeous. I collect biscuit barrels (ok, I have 3 to be honest) but have never seen a biscuit jar so lovely. That would be front and center in my kitchen. Well, someday when Audrey grows up. Deb

It's beautiful. I love brown transfer ware! Your pictures are so awesome.

Hi, Jacqueline! This is the 2nd time today that I have heard reference to the Aesthetic Movement. Because I'm not very learned about transferware, this is new to me. I love the look of it. I'm particularly partial to biscuit jars! I'm so glad you were able to get it at such a good price. Great eye!

Nancy @ Nancy's Daily Dish said...

It's adorable! I'm a sucker for anything with birds anyway. Some of my favorite transferware pieces are from the Aesthetic Movement and I like it for the same reasons as you.

Thanks for sharing,

Nancy

Lucky you.. what a great find. I love that piece. 6.95, you didn't leave off a digit did you? I would stash something really really good in there.. and then try not to eat them all at once! It's gorgeous. xo marlis

Sarah said...

Jacqueline, a find like this little charmer would have made my day too. In fact, it makes my day just getting to see it. Like you, the Aesthetic Movement with it's geometric motifs and natural elements appeal to me. And I seem to gravitate to the brown transfer ware pieces. Beautiful post as always........Sarah

Athena at Minervas Garden said...

Hi Jacqueline: This was a lovely post--I love the pretty birds and all the lovely details on your transferware biscuit jar. And it does look like it could be a prop for Downton Abbey, cookies or no! (It's always better with shortbread, though . . .)

GinaBVictorian said...

I love your biscuit jar and this is a real treasure. The birds in the transferware are so pretty darting in the circle, I enjoy this period in design. The price was a surprise and a great bargain.

Thanks, Pam
