I think this hexagonal Royal Doulton lidded jar is circa 1902-1922, having the crown under the lion mark, and probably Art Nouveau with its plant emphasis, but not being able to find any image anywhere online, I have more questions than answers.
Firstly, is it rare? What does the cross (like a kiss) in black ink on base signify? A certain artist's mark? If so, who? Does the hex. shape have a special name in Royal D ware? Is it a ginger jar or simply called lidded jar, being English? Was it originally orange or red? The lid seems to be almost mosque design - was there some other influence at the time? It has been repaired (photo) - had a tapered rectangular chip from rim down to slightly above arrow in photo.
It has the numbers 4507/A or 7507/A imprinted in base. Stands 9¾" tall by 3¾ wide.
