Vases and jars are ambient accessories for the home. Choose a decorative vase to display a floral arrangement in any room of the home. Ginger Jars are stand alone accessories that can show off on a bookcase shelf or just sit on a console or sofa table. Ginger Jars came into our design world in the late 19th century as the name given to Chinese ceramic jars having a wide mouth, globular body, and dome shaped cover. Our vase & jar collection includes ceramic, glass, and metal. Ceramic vases & ginger jars add decoration due to the designs that are painted on them, for example, some have floral designs or different types of birds, etc... Glass vases are clear or have colors mixed into the glass liquid which swirl in shades of color as they are made. Several types of metal can also be made into vases.
