Why is it called a ginger jar?
With a similar shape to the baluster jar, Chinese porcelain ginger jars have a rounded form, with broad shoulders tapering to the base and a narrowed neck topped by a domed lid. The unusual name comes from the export market, wherein salt and spices such as ground ginger travelled West in lidded storage vessels.
