Now here's a funny thing.
Today,for the second time, I came across a small ad for a blue & white ginger jar, supposedly previously auctioned by Christies (NYC) in 1980.
As a very recent starter in the field of Chinese porcelain, my experience and knowledge is very limited. However - to my untrained eye, at least - the jar strikes me as likely being a late C20th transfer printed copy.
The double rings and firing flaws on the base may give some credibility, but I for one am not convinced.
At risk of making a fool of myself, I would welcome the opinion and guidance of any experts (or even non-experts) to give their own view on the piece !
