Hello and Welcome to Just Answer,
My name is***** am a Personal Property Appraiser and would be happy to assist you with your question.
Do you have any photos of the marking on the underside of the piece you may be able to send? Is there any missing paint on the piece? Any gold around the handles?
There are a few different options to send pictures to us, they are as follows:
The link below will direct you through our upload process
You can also email pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org with ATTN MTantiques in the subject heading. Be sure to include the link to your question page in the email for our customer service. The emails can take up to a few hours to process, but as soon as I receive it I can send my evaluation.
Thank you for your time,
Thanks very much for getting back to me with those photos.
Your Japanese export ware would have been registered and produced in Japan circa 1910 and sent out for sale in the English market. The Satsuma style cookie jar/ biscuit barrel decorated with women in traditional Japanese garb would have a current resale value of around 70-90USD taking into account the chip on the lid and the slight wear on the handles.
I hope this information was helpful to you today.
Best of luck with your Samurai China cookie jar.
Any feedback you can leave for my service would be much appreciated.
