Description

Mini vases and ginger jars, like those collected by the Freer Gallery of the National Museum of Asian Art, are a charming addition to holiday decor and a year-round homage to centuries of Chinese craftsmanship.

In the 14th and 15th centuries, only China had access to the kaolin clay needed to produce such pure white porcelain. Chinese artisans' blue-and-white ware was coveted around the world and is still prized by collectors as contemporary artists expand and evolve the artform.

Museum Story

The Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery, the Smithsonian's National Museum of Asian Art, opened to the public in 1923, a gift to the nation from Charles Lang Freer. The Gallery contains an extensive collection of oriental art, prints, sculpture and silk panels, as well as a major group of 19th and 20th century American works.
