Judith has shared some lovely flattop still lifes
which I really liked. So I thought I would give it try.
I was also inspired by some other still lifes
shared by Teresa of Eden Hills recently as well.
This is a favorite treasure of mine
It was probably a bridal shower gift in 1947 which my mother always referred to as a 'mayonaise jar'. It wasn't used though and occupied a spot in a knick knack shadow box in our home.
A more refined title might be a covered majolica pottery jar to be used for salad dressing.
It is a piece of 'occupied Japan' pottery
My research found that majolica often has a lead glaze
so it's probably a good thing it wasn't used.
