This pot came out of a collection from a woman that traveled the world. She marked everything she had by the day she received it. This is marked Dec. 1949 I think but she probably received it as a gift and that was the day she got it. I would love to know what it was made for and when it was made? It measures approx 4 inches tall. It has a clay lid and a cork to seal it. Very cute little jar or pot.

    Based on information from, this jar was made in China for export to the United States sometime after 1891. The US Mckinley Tariff went into effect March 1891, requiring all imports to be marked with country of origin name. (In 1914 the law was changed to add the phrase "Made in.") From 1891-1949 all China imports were thus marked, although there was little trade between the two countries during this period due to domestic instability in China. (Trade resumed in the 1970s with different markings.)
