It’s ginger jar season! Now that the warm weather is (hopefully) here to stay, most of us have set our sights on spring/summer decor and ginger jars and chinoiserie vases once again take center stage as the decorative accents we all love year round, but particularly this time of year.
Ginger jars originally served as storage vessels for oils and spices in ancient China and didn’t become popular Western decorative accents until chinoiserie exports from Asia became all the rage in Europe during the 17th century. What started as a design trend nearly four hundred years ago has become a classic and I think it’s safe to say that blue and white chinoiserie has solidified a special place in all of our interior design loving hearts!
Although you don’t you have to break the bank when selecting ginger jars, I am a firm believer that if you have the funds, quality ginger jars and vases are worth the investment. The artwork on the more expensive containers is gorgeous and often hand painted, making them family heirlooms that can be passed down for generations. The jars about are a variety of prices and sizes and there is a little something for everyone. Happy shopping and happy Monday!
*P.S. When ordering your ginger jars and vases, be sure to check the dimensions. Often they look much larger online then they are in person.!
