Tuesday's Treasure ~ Ginger Jars

It's been a while since we've gone on a TT&B treasure hunt but I have been hunting and want to bring you up to speed! 
Ginger jars.
Love them.
So many things you can do with them; they go everywhere! While I don't have any surfaces to put them at the moment (another post to come on that, I need some bookshelves!) but that doesn't mean I can't start collecting!

So, here we go. Ginger jars. 
Ginger jars have a long line of history amongst Chinese culture. According to most resources, "A Ginger Jar is shaped with a wide mouth, a domed lid and a bulging, bulbous spherical hand painted body. They come in various styles and sizes and in many different colors. The true Chinese antique Ginger Jar is made of porcelain and hand painted. The jars acquired the name “Ginger Jars” because they often contained ginger (which was one of the most valuable spices at the time) when they were exported to the West."

So my lovelies, Ginger Jar treasures to fill your home on this fine Tuesday!
