Crafted by Royal Copenhagen, this lidded ginger jar features one of the most prestigious porcelain patterns ever produced — the coveted Flora Danica pattern. The jar is rarity in the Flora Danica catalog in that it displays not one, but three different plants, including the Anemone ranunculoidi & nemorosa Kse., or yellow wood anemone, the Crocus vernus L., or dutch crocus, and the Helleborus hyemalis L., or winter aconite. In addition to its motif, the form itself is extremely rare, as very few Flora Danica lidded ginger jars were ever made.

A work of scientific examination as well as artistic mastery, these designs are culled from George Christian Oeder's 1771 publication Flora Danica (Flowers of Denmark), an encyclopedia including 3,000 hand-colored prints depicting every wild plant known to exist in Denmark, including mosses, fungi, ferns and flowers. In 1790, King Christian VII of Denmark ordered a set of porcelain decorated with exact copies of Oeder's plates, and thus Royal Copenhagen's Flora Danica collection was born. Adored by royalty since its first inception, it is perhaps the world's most prestigious porcelain pattern made today.
