Description:

A pair of earthenware storage jars with covers printed in blue each with two patterns to which the TCC has assigned names:  On one side is the Chinese River Scene with Temple and Pyramids. Printed on the other side is a second pattern, Willow and Summer House.  The outer border is of a floral design including the passion flower and the interior border is made up of a linear series of half flowers.  The jar cover is decorated with a Heartsease and Primrose border found with a different pattern named Boy Piping.   A workman's mark, not yet identified, is found on each.  Possibly made by the Cambrian Pottery but not confirmed.
