Chinese Springtime Phoenix Tail Vase

About

The Chinese phoenix tail form dates to the bronze age, but endured throughout the centuries until this version was fired in the early 20th century. Cherry blossoms and cranes adorn the creamy base glaze. As a symbol of springtime renewal and beauty, cherry blossoms combine with the crane's implications of longevity. Placed in concert, the two are a powerful wish to achieve the joy of spring and maintain it throughout the year.
