Ginger Jars

I’m currently on a ginger jar kick – searching for and collecting them wherever I can find them. Did you know that these jars date back to China’s Tang Dynasty and were once used to to carry ginger, one of the most valuable spices at the time, when they were exported to the West? The blue and white is so classic but I also love the simplicity of the white jars. If you love them as much as I do, I suggest trying Williams Sonoma or One King’s Lane for beautiful renditions!

    They are quite beautiful. I would love a more modern version though – perhaps just substituting the blue for black? The plain whites are also lovely.
