    Not a ginger jar. Would not call these "authentic." There is a traditional shape - and these are not that.

    What size are they? They look like some sort of double snuff bottle. Authentic Chinese for sure. Authentic old Chinese? Doubtful.

    There was something similar to these at an antiques fair I went too. The seller was chatting to someone and called them ‘booby pots’ because of the **ahem** ‘distinctively’ shaped lids.
    Sorry to lower the tone of the thread:shy:
