Ginger Jar Minis
Our Ginger Jar Mini Lamps are perfect for those smaller spaces - slimline consoles & bedside spots, a dining table or a side board with a smaller footprint.
These diminutive beauties are harder to source than their more common larger counterparts.
Sourced from 1970s stock, they feature hand-finished flora & fauna, depicting a range of auspicious meanings.
The majority of this collection symbolises Shòu, one of the three most important life goals in Chinese tradition.
The vintage designs feature both the literal Chinese character & other representations, such as the Longevity Peach.
The other designs include the song bird (associated with joy & friendship), the Lily (a popular Chinese wedding flower, they symbolise a long, happy union) and clouds; considered the union of yin & yang as they unite the elements of water & air, sky & earth.
