This 20th century blue-and-white ginger jar was originally designed for storing spices. It is hand painted with trailing vines and the character for "double happiness", a traditional symbol of marriage and conjugal bliss. Chinese blue-and-white porcelain has inspired ceramists worldwide since cobalt was first introduced to China from the Middle East thousands of years ago.
