Inherited Ginger Jar
Asian Antique Ginger Jar (poss. 18th c.)
My great grandfather was a highly reputable collector/dealer of fine antiques. I inherited this piece (among numerous others) which has been a source of mystery for eons. I've never been able to identify the mark on the base of the porcelain Ginger jar nor found out what date it originated from. I recall my great grandfather always advising it was 18th century & quite valuable - but I've no idea whether or not that's accurate. This piece has no chips, cracks, breaks, or rough glazing anywhere...it's in perfect condition.
Sorry the photos are a tad blurry - I used my cell phone to capture the images.
Thank you in advance for any assistance!
