Kangxi blue and white large porcelain lidded jar made at Jingdezhen for export to Europe.

Painted with prunus blossom on a cracked ice ground which is repeated on the lid.

The jar was made for decoration to be used in large houses and later erroneously became known as ginger jar, a generic term to name all lidded jars. This jar with original lid is far to large to be a storage jar for ginger or any spice, it was made as a decorative item

Excellent painting to the body with the colour bright and vibrant

The lid is original and is a good fit
