Matched pair of porcelain rose jars (Potpourri jars) with octagon shape, so called as they were filled with dried rose petals. They are Hungarian and have a gold lion on top. The lions are painted with a rough finish gold paint. They have their mouths open and one paw up on a bright and smooth gold ball. Ornately painted with red, blue, and dark yellow flowers with green leaves and vines on white background with gold trim at top. "Fischer / Budapest" is incised on the bottom. This is probably Moritz Fischer who owned Herend Pottery. Letter from Mary Lord Harrison states they were from an Hungarian friend.
