I have this ginger jar with the impression on the bottom "Wai Ming Hong Kong". This beautiful piece was owned by my husband's grandparents which they acquired in the early 50s. The piece I have has a lid with a hole in the center that would accommodate a rod for a lamp but was never done. We display it in our living room on a shelf. I went ahead and stuck a string of multi colored Christmas lights inside it and turn it on at night. The lights show off the beauty of the jar and I get compliments all the time on it. It's value is priceless since it belonged to his grandparents who have, of course, passed on.
I would love to know if "Wai Ming" was the artist or is it the name of the company that manufactured it?
Any info on this precious and priceless piece would be welcomed.
