A Chinese blue & white 'Triple Happiness' ginger jar, late 18th / early 19th century, painted with three happiness characters within a trailing foliate filled ground and with a key pattern border at the shoulder.
These ginger jars were customarily given as wedding gifts.
In good condition, there is one small section of missing glaze (see photograph) probably due to a firing imperfection which has subsequently fallen out.
