This is a beautiful vintage porcelain ginger jar made by LJ (made in Japan). It is in great condition; butterfly and floral images are clear and unblemished.
What is a ginger jar? Ginger jars were used to store salt, oil, and spices. During the 19th century, ginger jars were exported to the West and were called ginger jars because they often contained ginger. Ginger jars are now often used for decorative purposes.
