    i first thought this was a ginger jar but this pretty little jar looks like it was used to hold tea. it is a turquoise green with flowers and a crane. i don't know anything about it yet so if u have any info leave me a message. no markers or asian writing on this one but i am sure it is asian. love this site!
    update:
    i found an identical ginger jar for sale on a popular web site and here is what the owner had to say about this lovely jar:

    This gorgeous Chinese Tang Sancai ginger jar was exported from China to the US sometime between 1890-1920, though it is older than that. It features an applied figural crane, lotus blossoms and leaves, and aquatic grasses, giving an overall three dimensional look. Done on a turquoise ground, the colors include, yellows, greens, pinks, white, and tan. It has a red stamp on its bottom that says "China" which helps to date it, as well as a partial customs stamp. Just a stunning piece!
    Tang Sancai (or three colored ware) is a polychrome lead glaze decorated pottery. "Three-color" doesn't mean only three colors, but multicolored. During the Tang Dynasty (618-907), the production of Tang Sancai reached its peak, which is part of the reason the pottery got the name of Tang San Cai.

    Unsure of maker; dates from the mid to late 1800s.

    i am soooo lucky!! mine did not have any labels stamped on the bottom but this jar is so unique i was able to find another on line. so far i have only found 2 others like mine and the information is the same. it is a genuine antique!
