30" Blue and White Dragon Ginger Jar Table Lamp
FREE SHIPPING on all Avala International, Inc. Table Lamps! See Shipping and Returns for more details.
Hand painted Chinese Ming style blue and white porcelain table lamp with a ginger jar body is decorated with two dragons amidst clouds in pursuit of flaming pearls, between a band of ocean waves below, and a Chinese meander 'Greek Key' border above. This lamp comes on your choice of an acrylic or rosewood base and includes a drum shade with a diameter of 18" with your color choice of white, cream, or tan. The shade may be swapped out for your choice of three other shade types. Pleated shades will require an additional charge.
The heaped and piled decoration of the ginger jar was common in the early Ming dynasty. During the 14-15th century, there was a tendency of cobalt decoration to be so heavily applied that it would break through the glaze and create dark patches of pure cobalt. These patches on the surface of the glaze would present dark, violet-like blackish spots because of the high pigment concentration, or due to impurities in the cobalt.
Today this heaping and piling technique can be found on some of our porcelain reproductions with underglaze blue decoration to recreate this authentic style and period of the early Ming dynasty.
Handmade and hand decorated, these porcelain lamp bodies are all potted and fired in the same kilns of Jingdezhen, China as they were over 1,000 years ago. Measurements are approximate and can vary slightly depending on the potter and the kilns used to fire the porcelain. Color and design can also vary slightly depending on the artist applying the cobalt decoration or polychrome enamels. Handmade and hand decorated, all lamps are made to order. If purchasing a pair, please order them at the same time so we can ensure a close match.
Shade measurements and related details below are specific to the shade shown in the image gallery. While some images may depict wider shade trims, please be aware that all shades come with a 1/2" trim only.

We encourage our customers to read our Warranty Policy carefully before making their purchase.

WARNING: Never use ammonia-based cleaning agents to clean any part of this lamp. These agents will cause an acrylic or Lucite base to become cloudy which is irreversible once damaged. They will also remove the finish from a rosewood stand or wooden lamp base.
When cleaning an acrylic base and porcelain lamp body, use only a non-abrasive damp cloth, preferably a microfiber towel or lint-free cloth. Dampen the cloth with warm water and wipe down the lamp and base.
When cleaning a wooden or rosewood base, never use water or liquid cleaning agents. Use only a dry non-abrasive lint-free cloth. Do not dampen the cloth as this will remove the rosewood finish.
Hardback shades are not washable. To clean the hardback shade, only use a dry, soft microfiber towel or lint-free cloth and wipe down gently until all noticeable dust and dirt is removed.
