This canister is a good size for storing cookies, snacks or whatever else you might have that you need to store in an air tight container. The canister features the Otagiri Three Geese pattern. Each of the geese is wearing a different colored ribbon around its neck. The geese are in relief form against a white background. The canister is 8.5 inches tall x 5 inches on each side. The sides are flat squared. The lid is blue, matching one of the ribbons. This was made in Japan the 1980s and has the Otagiri trademark and black and gold foil label on the bottom. The outside of the jar is in excellent vintage condition; however, there are multiple rim chips on the inside of the jar well below the plastic seal. The rim chips are shown in the photos. The canister is a rare find in this pattern.
