Raised floral decorations in green, rose, pink, white, yellow, brown, blue and orange cover the jar all around. There are highlights of gold in the design, around the opening and around the bottom. The original porcelain lid is replaced by a vintage wood lid with two carved circles in the center and around the bottom. The jar is a classic Japanese floral design in heavy celadon porcelain that is highly sought by collectors. There is a Kutani influence in the design. The jar is signed Matsumura Zo on the bottom and dates to the early 20th century (late Meiji to early Showa, 1900 – 1940). The dark wood stand has a raised center with four legs that curve under. The stand is in excellent condition with expected wear. There are surface scratches and a rub in the raised area. There are four old pieces of felt on the bottom of the legs. There are no chips, cracks, missing pieces, repairs or damage. The vintage wood lid is in excellent condition with expected wear. There are surface scratches, a few rubs and variation in the color of the stain. I do not know the age of the wood lid but it shows nice age. There are no chips, cracks, repairs or damage. I added the wood replacement lid at a later date and it looks quite nice with the ginger jar. The porcelain jar is in excellent condition with expected wear from use. The gold highlights are bright and beautiful. There are characteristics of old porcelain that occured during the making.
