This beauty features the Preserve Jar Form with a Double Cobalt Plume with Center Tornado, a typical Norton decoration.  Strong cobalt blue.  Measures 12" tall.  

 

Very Good Condition.  Six chips inside the top rim (1/8" to 3/8"), a 1" chip on the rim in the back, and some light staining from use.  No seating rim or base chips, hairlines, cracks, or restoration.
