The Ginger Jar Blue Parrot is truly a beautiful model of the antique ancient Chinese ginger jars. In choice of colour, motif, shape and glazed design, this ginger jar is nothing short of the pinnacle of porcelain sophistication!
Do you know the story behind why these jars are called “ginger jars”? They are so-called by English speaking countries after these jars were brought over from China and used in transporting oil, salt and the precious ginger spice which is how it got its name. While it is no longer used by merchants for transporting items, it has now been redeployed to serve the decorative needs of interior and exterior spaces.
They are often placed in groups for heightened decorative effect or simply placed individually for that unique look. Featuring a nature centred motif and the vibrant colour choice of navy blue over a shiny white background; it is truly a tempting jar.
Measures: 18 x 18 x 45.5cm
