Listed is a unique handmade Large Ginger Jar – c. 1880. This beautiful jar is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks although it does have some rust stains, adding to this pot’s one-of-a-kind patina.

Ginger jars are depicted by their high-shoulders, rounded shapes, small mouths, and domed lids. Although they were originally used to store and transport spices, hence their name, the containers (which typically don’t include handles) have been used primarily as decorative objects since the 19th century.

Please consider the images as your best description for all of my items.

Pot may contain crazing, spots of discoloration, hairline cracks and minor chips and fleabites that only add to its character and do not detract from its display value.  These are expected due to age, use and being buried for decades and then being dug up and rescued.

I offer substantial savings in shipping costs when multiple items are combined into one package.  I work hard to find the most economical shipping options available by checking multiple discount carriers.

I will credit any overpayment of postage charged to you after finding the best shipping option. I check both and for the most economical delivery to save you shipping dollars. These companies negotiate better rates with USPS, Fed Ex and UPS than individuals can on their own.
