Vintage large black and pink Chinese ginger jar
This is a rare collectible piece of Chinese ginger jar pottery with its original lid. It is from around the 1950s and is black with large pink and white peony flowers and green leaves. The jar and lid are both in good condition, commensurate with age. Maker's mark at the bottom is either a 6 or 9. A beautiful decorative piece that now looks very on trend again as all things foliage are back in fashion.
