This answer was rated:

I have just been given a lovely ceramic jar/urn , has two handles, a lid in a blue glaze, on its drum like body I think it is covered in a goldish metal with circular engravings.
The borders have enamel flowers in white, I have taken pictures of the inside marking (can only identify one word England) there are more marks there.
I can send you pictures if you can send me email address to send to.

You can email pictures to***@******.*** and put 'for rarewares in antiques' in the subject line.

These do not arrive instantly, so thanks in advance for some patience when sending this way.
