    japanese ginger jars, a fine pair of large ones
    ceramic pottery
    subject matter prunus blossom & winding branches cherry blossom tree
    decades have past these darlings have travelled on my journey low high they never let go
    ceramic glaze black white green
    late 19th century early 20th century
    good proportions ,,, height 11 inch width approximately 9 inch
    as they would sing they want to come again
    blue skys through the tears in my eyes
    now truly eye am the omega man
    lost in late winters chime
    a man walks his boxer on a thin line
    but he dont care he,s listenin to tunes so devine
    locked away you would think i was blue
    the company eye keep is a reflection to me
    black and gold you,ll see is a reptile to be
    life like a fairy land lustre
    sprinkle some star dust and i,ll be back
    all the very best malkey the omega man 1412
    lots of love cw gang army of lovers
    you gave me refuge when the all would not let me fly
    free from man made shackles how else could eye exist

      Ginger jar — beautiful! Love snakes, wild frightening animals (in jewellery, only, of course). Thank you — This ginger jar of yours made me rethink some of my collection from an American pottery. The antique/vintage books have always told that mine were “grease jars”; and I always wondered why anyone would think to put something like grease in one of the beauties. I believe you have given me an awakening of sorts. They are, instead, ginger jars. TY
