Chinese porcelain jars were initially used to ship and store ginger and other spices. Later porcelain in these forms became popular as pure luxury items. This early 20th-century baluster jar is a great example: its rounded body, high shoulders, and domed lid were all carefully crafted by Qing Dynasty artisans and then painted by hand with loosely rendered chrysanthemums.
