Small Vintage “Jingdezhen” Ginger Jar


Probably produced somewhere in the middle to latter half of the last century, this pretty pink ginger jar is in excellent condition, and even still has its original seal!
I believe the technique used here is called sgraffiato or in this case ruby- sgraffiato- A technique whereby the surface is covered with a fine pale slip which is then incised through to the underlying body and then covered with a transparent glaze, and often highlighted with splashes of coloured glaze. It is also known as graffito or sgraffito ware.

*Please note that although the seal is still intact the jar feels empty!
