Lost- 2 handmade ginger jars.
Hi, I am hoping to find my family’s lost 1974 handmade heirloom jars. In 1974 my older brother gave me 2 beautifully glazed ceramic jars that were handmade by him for Christmas. I was a young girl when I received them and I have cherished them for over 48 years. In February, I decided it was time to send them back to my brother so he could give them to his grown kids and grandkids. Unfortunately, he never received them as i was told by USPS that the mailman marked the package as delivered then left the package at the wrong house.😕
I’m not sure if the package was actually stolen by a passerby or possibly just left sitting somewhere.
I’m really hoping someone might recognize my jars in the photos.
The jars are small and measure approximately 4 or 5 inches. One jar is a beautiful red and pewter color. The other jar is a mottled green color. Also lost, is the hand carved wood and spider piece made also made by my brother.
These items were all sent in a large priority mail shipping box.
I know the photos are not very clear but that was all I could find. The green and red jars sat in my hutch for many years and the image is very hard to see in the photo. The green jar is sitting on a matching pedestal and is on the right in the photo. My brothers name, “Danny” is hand carved on the bottom of each piece and the red jar has the letter he wrote to me and our mom that Christmas.
I know this is a long shot as I live in California but I’d gladly pay $100. for the return of these items.
My brother lives on Widener rd. in Knoxville Tn. Please contact me if you recognize my childhood treasures.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
P.S. Also included in my lost package was the skull and spider carving. Also made by my brother.
