Ginger jars are large containers with lids that were used to stock spices and herbs in ancient China during the Qin Dynasty. In the 19th century, the jars were exported to Europe and Europeans began calling them “ginger jars” presumably because they carried ginger! A classical ginger jar is characterized by its rounded ovoid shape and high shoulders.
