We are delighted to bring you this lovely vintage reverse glass painting of a very elegant woman holding her dog in front of a wooded background.  We know this is Asian (you can tell by the way the lady’s features are painted), but are unsure if it is Japanese or Chinese.

Antique Nippon Porcelain Mustard Jars

So, what exactly is a mustard jar?  Back in the ‘old days’, our female ancestors had clever ways of hiding unsightly jars and cans in their kitchen.  One of the smallest kitchenalia items we’ve seen from the past are the adorable mustard jars.  Mustard was used quite often for all types of cooking, so these little jars came in quite handy.  Little spoons were included and were usually made of porcelain. Sometimes they had under plates, and some of them were even attached to the jar, like this little beauty:

Even though it has no spoon, this beautiful piece covered in pansies & gold is in super condition!  Buy it here!

We also adore this footed mustard jar featuring violet flowers & gold.  Buy it now here!

We have many other antique Nippon mustard jars in our eBay store, you can find them all by clicking here.
