Thanks to all of you who wrote with what you thought this piece was. I called it a Salt Cellar - WRONG!!
It is definitely a biscuit/cracker jar. Probably from the early 1950's. It is in perfect shape and has crazing on the bottom only. There is a marking on the bottom but it cannot be read with the crazing.
The ones listed similar to this were all made in Japan and several of them were labeled Majolica without any markings. So, I don't know about that for sure.
Thanks for your help figuring out what this gorgeous piece is.
Till next time, Judy
