19thc Chinese Tongzhi Period Blue & White Export Porcelain Double Joy Ginger Jar:
BLUE & WHITE
You are being offered a Small 19th Century Chinese Blue and White Export Porcelain Double Joy or Double Happiness Ginger Jar with a Carved Wood Lid and it is decorated with an Underglaze Cobalt Blue Motif of Scrolling Sweet Pea Vines, symbolizing “Many Children” and “Forever” and there are Two Shuangxi Symbols for “Wedded Bliss Four Times Repeated" on its Sides. Being Export Porcelain, the Jar doesn’t have any reign or hallmarks, but we are fairly certain it was made during the Qing Dynasty’s Tongzhi Period (1862-1874) as items with the Shuangxi Symbol were very popular Wedding Gifts during this time period. The Jar stands almost 5¼ inches high to the Top of its Lid and it measures 5¼ inches in diameter at its widest point. There is a tiny flake chip in the Finish on the Bottom Edge of its Wood Lid and there is a little bit of grit stuck in the Clear Glaze on its Side; otherwise, the Ginger Jar is in Very Good Condition, without any chips, cracks, scratches or losses. Please refer to the photographs on the left for further details. We hope you like it and remember, this Ginger Jar is being offered with Free Shipping within the Continental United States.
