In China what we know commonly as a Ginger Jar is simply known as Guan, meaning a jar. The Western world got to know the name of Ginger Jar due to the rise in exports from China of Ginger which were consequently transported in jars. Also traditionally guan were used to store any manner of herbs or spices or other condiment. Today they are very popular interior decor art pieces. If you have any further questions please ask.
