The term "ginger jar" is a Western invention. In the East, the shape is simply called "guan" or jar, and they were used to store herbs & spices, not just ginger. Even tho it's not that unusual to find an antique jar intact with its lid, it is rare to find one with the perforated insert, as you see with this listing. I'm sure many, if not all of the jars actually intended for herbs and spices probably originally had these pieces. Only later jars, created and used for decorative purposes, didn't have these.There was no reason for them since the use of them was simply to please the eye. Because they began to be used as decor, they were made in larger and larger sizes when, in reality, we're talking about a spice jar here and spice jars are small, like this one. Measurements are 4.5"H x 3 5/8" in diameter. This fine vintage item is offered with a fair and reasonable fixed price. My photos detail this item to justify the asking price.
