A brilliant follower of Chinoiserie Chic who has the blog Treasure Hunt for The National Trust and who I am always learning from, reminded me of this wonderful John Singer Sargent painting at the Tate of two sisters next to a huge ginger jar. This was in his comment to my post yesterday showing the oversized ginger jar in Ralph Lauren's NYC flagship store the Rhinelander Mansion. The painting in turn reminded me of this great photo of Mary McDonald at her home next to a massive ginger jar. This is such a classic and timeless look. For more inspiration on using large ginger jars, read my previous post here.
