The jars were only ever decorative items - all the talk of ginger growers and importers is hallucinatory but they're Crown Lynn products - there are buckets of shards of them in the Portage collection.

I understand that the Ginger Jars were made for a well known Chinese Fruit and Vegie merchant who filled them with preserved ginger for the local Chinese community Very Happy

Hmmm the next generation probably won't be able to see an old site like this the way technology is travelling ....
Hahaaa this site is turning into a Crown Lynn Appreciation Society.
The Admins take no responsibility for personal addictions, as they have enough troubles struggling with their own Razz
