My Lady Powder Jar

Updated 10/20/2022

A covered jar with the figure of a draped lady on top. One of the odd pieces of Carnival that nobody knows much about. Some collectors feel this was of European origin, others think it's from the US during the depression era or later. At one time these consistently brought more than $100, but in recent years they've typically sold for between $25 and $50 at auction.

However, one sold for $140 in 2016.

In 2021, two sold at the same auction for $60 each

In 2022 one sold for $25.
