The vintage Chinese ginger jars we source for our lamps were hand-made and hand-painted by skilled artisans between 20-50 years ago. They feature traditional designs, each with their own auspicious meaning.
Ginger jars were once used to export exotic spices from The Orient. They later became highly sought-after decorative items that were popular across Europe. They're now a firm design classic, loved by interiors enthusiasts from the Hamptons to Hong Kong.
Our Ginger Jars started life in the town of Jingdezhen, China's homeland of blue & white ceramics. It is known as the 'Porcelain Capital' and produces pieces using the same ancient methods it has for the last 1700 years.
It is with great pleasure that we source these unique pieces to form our carefully-curated collection.
