It comes with a professionally fabricated cover which is very well done both in modelling and decoration, displays nicely and is clearly a significant piece of work to have created but it is not original to the piece so it will be down to personal preference whether to use it or not in display. The canister measures 12cm (4 3/4") high and 7.5cm (3") wide. It measures 15.2cm (6) high with the cover. There is a very fine hairline in the glaze running at an angle down the collar, almost invisible on the outside and on the inside, it partly runs along an slightly indented line in the glaze so may possibly have been caused in firing.
