    I bought this today at a local flea market for about $3.80. Normally, I would've walked right on by but this jar screamed at me! I know next to nothing about these things.

    100% hand painted. Not a speck of transfer printing anywhere. About 9 inches high and about 18 inches girth. A bit on the heavy side.
    To bad there wasn't another one. A pair would have been better.

    Thanks for looking/loving.

      I swear, one day Bonnie's gonna come prancing on here and say, Guess what, I bought the freaking Hope Diamond for a nickel. :P
    10. katherinescollections katherinescollections, 6 years ago
      Wow, great information, OAS. Those are the kind of intimate details that really tell the story perfectly, thank you. :)
    11. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 6 years ago
      OAS - thanks for the info! No matter what it is, I like it very much. The fact that it's totally hand painted wins it points.

      @katherinescollections: don't be surprised.... I have bought 14/18K gold and gold/diamond jewelry for literally PENNIES. I have a pair of BIG creole hoop earrings which are 18K gold. Stamped 750 with the maker or retailer's name beautifully cast in script on the inner rim. What did I pay? 25 CENTS. The earring are "brass", you see...so sold as brass. WAH HAHAHAHA!

      Good eye, Efe!
      My bargains are rather 10 or 100 than 25 cents... But a bargain is a bargain ;-)
    13. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 6 years ago
      kyratango - that's right. When you buy something for 100 and it's value is greater than that, then you have done well!

      Efesgirl sorry to take so long in getting back & thank you for telling us what the dog is have a great day
    15. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 6 years ago

      melaniej - of all the ceramic pottery living in my house, this ginger jar is in my Top 5 favorites. It's a big lump, but it's a beautiful big lump! :-))))

      Hiya Vintage_Joe - thanks for the comment. I'm not a fan of oriental ceramics/pottery, the exception being this ginger jar.
