This lovely ginger jar would make a great wedding gift or a wonderful Christmas gift. The floral pattern is very delicate and clearly hand painted. It looks very vintage and has an elegance that would make you want to display this item in some way.
Ginger jars are generally of similar shape and made of porcelain -- they all look a bit like a vase or urn with wide shoulders. A matching domed lid rests atop the opening of the jar, although the lid may be missing on an antique piece.
Ginger jars are used primarily for decor in modern times, since spices are sold in different types of containers. Some collectors group ginger jars for display on shelves or tables based on color or size, or use them as vases for floral arrangements. In some cases, the spice jars are converted into table lamps - the jar shape is similar to the shape of many ceramic lamps.
