Luxury Design, Past & Present
Pair large late 19th Century Blue and White Chinese Porcelain Vases-This large pair of vases with double happiness symbols was made in China in the very late 19th century or possibly within the first decade of the republic period. Made as export wares to be sent abroad the color of the blue is deep and rich. While the symbols are typical of the time and the overall design is freely drawn with a lively hand. The vases are further enhanced by the double dragon handles which face towards each other vertically down the side of the vases at the neck. Made without reign marks, heavily potted as is expected this pair make a great decorative addition to any blue and white collection.
