Porcelain Ginger Jars

Porcelain Ginger Jars are steeped in centuries of Asian culture and history.  These jars are handmade and hand painted.  The round yellow “pearl” shaped jar was long used as an offering to the Emperor with wishes for a long and healthy life. The white Phoenix and Dragon jars continue to be a traditional wedding gift with double wishes to the bride and groom.
