Hello, I found this set of ginger jars on an estate sale from an old antique dealer here in Texas. Your typical story that she closed her store 45 years ago and everything was as she left it.

Anyways, I think that the enamel paintings are really well done and it shows some quality (at least compared to other pieces I have been exposed too). They are around 5 inches tall. The mark I cannot recognize for the life of me. Looked really hard to find a similar one but couldn't.

I know that red marks were more common after 1850's. The shape and size suggest me it's from Guangxu, but the decoration coil't also be late Guangxi to early republic? I'm really lost on this one.

Any help I thank you in advance.

Also, the top rim , the actual top part is white glazed , then it's not glazed where the lids used to go, then white glazers the base color of the rest of the jar.

Thank you.!!!


No need to look at the mark, I'm afraid. The colors used and the style of the flowers shows that is at the best second half of 20th century.


Thank you Peterp. I think I need to go back to the basics...
