8 1/2 (21.5 cm) tall with the lid and. (22.5 cm) in diameter.The jar weighs 4 lbs (1.85 kg) without packaging and the stand. Traditional Chinese festival is hand painted on this rare jar: the cetral figure is a lady in bright orange robe carrying a newborn baby and. Riding the most fanciful creature in Chinese mythology, the Qilin (also known as Kylin and Kirin in Japan). He has a body of the deer or horse, dragon's head, deer antlers, hooves of an ox, scales of a fish and a lion's tail. In spite of his looks he's very kind creature, bringing good luck and fortune and, what's most important in our story, children to families. In front of Qilin another woman walks/dances carrying a vaseful of oranges or some flowers.
Then four men with traditional Chinese hair styles are walking, two of them carry blue and violet banners and other two have red/orange banners with words. The last one in this procession is a man behind central figure of Qilin, carrying and sun shade or a canopy.

There are no marks or stamps on the bottom of the jar.Though there is some sort of a sign on the inside edge of the opening, I couldn't read it, it looks like two lines and a zero.
