Painted honeycomb jar

This is a typical painted ceramic by Jessie M King.  She developed this line of painted pottery from 1920, and it was one of her main sources of income.  She purchased the ceramics in 'biscuit' state then painted on her designs and sent the ware back to the ceramic manufacturer for glazing.   Floral painted ceramic box with a seperate lid having the form of a bee as its handle.  The box has the verses 'Kissing is out of Fashion / When the Whin is out of Blossom', around the top of the four sides of the box.  The work has her marks on the base - a rabbit, a green gate and the initials 'JMK'.
