About this item

These ginger pots are hard to date as they were very popular between 1600 - 1800's, being shipped all over the world as exotic decorative items. They were first used as utilitarian spice pots, but were named ginger pots as this is what they usually contained when shipped to Europe.

These pots originally had lids, but can very rarely be found with it intact as they were unglazed and broke easily. Making this cream pot with lid a rare find.

Only the cream pot available.
