Blue and White Ginger Jar Double Happiness
Beautiful blue and white Chinese Ginger Jar in lovely vintage condition.
The main decoration / motif symbolizes double happiness (shuang xi) and these jars were frequently given as wedding gifts.
This elegant, classic piece is an excellent way to add a touch of blue and white, hollywood regency or chinoiserie style to your decor.
The ginger jar has double circles marked on the bottom. This is an older vintage piece (most likely midcentury or earlier), so it does have some iron oxide spots to show it is not new. It's a lovely example of a sizable eye-catching ginger jar. There is a small chip in the glaze on the edge of the lid that very well may been part of it’s creation, and the edge of the glaze on the lid is irregular. The blue ink is imperfect in spots due to it's handmade nature. (See photos)
