Blue and White Chinese Porcelain Vase


This elegant porcelain vase dates from the 19th century when such pieces became widely popular in China, the vase has a traditional blue and white floral design painted with intricate detail by a skilled artisan. Blue-and-white porcelain originated in China thousands of years ago and has inspired ceramists worldwide ever since. The cranes featured here symbolize prosperity and longevity. We love the way these symbols converse with the items placed within, creating a vessel that protects its contents physically and spiritually.
