Long ago, ginger jars were used to store valuable spices and transport them from markets in the east to buyers in the west, hence their name. But, the containers have been collected mainly as decorative objects for the last 200 years when demand for Chinese antiques spurred exports to Europe. This beautiful jar was painted by hand in the Jiangxi region of China with painterly cobalt scenes of scholars in a garden with a Japanese pine.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
