A classic shape in lamps is the ginger jar or temple jar style of lamp. According to House Beautiful magazine, the ginger jar was "originally a vessel for storing precious spices in ancient China.” Although they are often associated with blue and white china, ginger jars come in many different colors today.
This elegant black and white porcelain lamp from East Enterprises, one we recently featured in a display at Knox and Panoply, is in the sophisticated ginger jar style, a shape that is perfect in many different styles of decor, from traditional and Asian-themed to country style.
