Large Chinese Ginger Jar - Moth Motto.

Post by potterymad62 on November 18th 2017, 12:12 pm

Hi to all again. Just acquired the lovely large ginger jar with large moth motifs. All hand painted with colour enamels. Made of quality porcelain and unmarked, if I'm correct this not likely to be an export. My knowledge on Chinese pottery is no great. Would love some expert input and background to this fantastic piece. My guess for it's age, I would put it somewhere from the late 19th century - early 20th century, but could be a lot latter.  

Regards

Ernest

I think it's modern. Earlier 20thC ones would have been stamped 'made in China' in English or Kanji, but modern ones just have a label which washes off
