This ginger jar dates to the early 20th century and features rounded sides and high shoulders that curve in towards a narrow mouth. Painted with expressive brushwork in a palette of pinks, blues, and greens, the jar is festooned with peony blossoms, emblems of spring time and feminine beauty. A red bird sits perched amid the flowers and hand-painted characters decorate the jar's opposite side. The opening is covered by a domed lid painted with additional characters and topped by a teardrop-shaped knob.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
