Antique Chinese Ginger Jar Turquois White Aqua Figural Export Enamel Blue Rare

A fabulous antique Chinese ginger jar decorated with white figures and butterflies on a turquoise field. I've been unable to find a comparable in my research, but I believe this piece dates to the mid 19th century. Please feel free to politely offer your opinion. It's 8" tall sans lid and 8" at the widest. There are no chips, cracks or dings but there is some flaking on the turquoise finish. Was listed as Chinese Export at the sale. I do not believe the wood lid is original. This is not my area of expertise, so please feel free to politely offer your opinion. I'm just back from a fabulous buying trip and have many wonderful items for sale in my Sunny Knoll Antiques eBay store, so please check my listings for other great finds. Always happy to combine shipping or provide additional photos. PLEASE CHECK FOR A VACATION FLAG AT THE TOP OF THE PAGE BEFORE MAKING A PURCHASE!

SHIPPING: Next day shipping on items paid for by 9:00 p.m. EST, Mon-Fri. and sometimes on Saturday via USPS Priority or Parcel Post and UPS for larger items. I charge a handling fee of $1.50 for small boxes and $2.00 for large boxes. If I must purchase a special box to ship your item, I'll pass that cost on to you. Paypal requires signed delivery confirmation on items over $250, which costs $2.10 IF YOU HAVE A SPECIAL SHIPPING REQUEST LIKE DOUBLE BOXING, SHIPPING

Please let me know if this poses a problem for you. If you are buying multiple items, please do not submit a Paypal payment until I've sent you a combined invoice. Payment by Paypal is appreciated within 48 hours, unless prior arrangement has been made. Please note that Paypal states that items paid for by bank draft (which is the automatic default for buyers who don't have a balance in their Paypal account) should not be shipped until the transaction has cleared, which normally takes 3-4 business days. If you want your item shipped next day, please make sure you have elected to send an instant payment.

THE FINE PRINT : Most of the items I sell come from estate/yard sales, flea markets, etc. Accordingly, they most always will show some signs of use. I try diligently to well describe each item I sell. My nearly 14-year 100% positive feedback is a testament to that. Please see my about M E page for my condition-rating system. My barn is open by chance or appointment and people stop by to shop. I'll often sell a piece that has no bids, so if you see something you want, don't wait until the last moment to bid because it might not be there! Please feel free to ask questions. eBay will automatically engage its bidder assistant program on items that remain unpaid 8 days after the sale. I can only ship to the address provided on your paypal payment.

IN CASE OF DAMAGE : I insure each item and pack my items very well. In the unlikely event of your having to file a claim, photos of the breakage and shipping box, along with packing materials must be provi de d to prove the item was well packed or my insurance company will limit coverage to $100. So if you have a problem, contact me immediately, and don't throw anything away!

GLOBAL SHIPPING PROGRAM: I participate in eBay's Global Shipping Program, whenever possible. Buyers NOT WISHING TO PARTICIPATE may request an invoice prior to payment, which will allow me to invoice you directly and offer another shipping option(s).

Go to My eBay. From the "Take action" menu next to the item, select "Request total." Enter message details to clarify why you're requesting the total. I am unable to offer optional shipping once an item is paid for.

INTERNATIONAL BIDDERS : Buyers from Australia, Canada and the UK, as well as repeat, known international buyers, may request a first class international rate . Otherwise, due the lack of Paypal seller protection for that mode of shipment, I'm only offering prio...
