ginger style pot chinese or chinoise .seen on e bay as chinese

by annette
(essex uk)

this is one of the pots i have .this has a good decoration was dug in a victorian tip ,i was researching something else and i found one similar to this on e bay ,i have pots almost identical to the one on e bay claiming to be chinese with a 100 + dollars price tag .i was of the opinion they were kent pottery ,would be interesting to have your opinion as there are lots of unsure stuff on e bay .the last photo is an example of the one on e bay .this one has been stained from being buried so the colour is not visable usualy white/grey with blue stripes .your opinion would be greatly appreciated so i can let e bay or the seller know .thanks

Hi Annette,
Looks like a typical Qing dynasty jar to me (I don't mean the other one in the fourth picture). In English they call this a Ginger Jar.
