This is a follow up, the first jar is the marked one w/lid. The wood is a hard wood colored red. The 2nd is close but different marking and no marks on bottom. Please see my other submission for marks on bottom. Ginger Jar.
I have spent so much time trying to figure out just what I have. I received 2 jars, but close but not the same. One has marks and the only thing I think I was able to figure out is it is 20 century from one mark, but have had no luck with the others. The other jar has no marks at all. One other puzzle is they both have laquered red wood tops. I must think that this was added to sell them since I have not seen any other wood tops
