Pair of Vintage Chinese Cloisonné Vases with Dragons and Phoenix, c. 1940's

$7,500per set


Pair of exquisite 1940's Chinese Cloisonné large vases. Cloisonné is an ancient technique which incorporates decorative materials like enamel, colored glass, or gemstones into metalwork objects bound by wire on metal backing. The pair of vases feature extraordinary depictions of Chinese mythological phoenix birds and dragons in vibrant colors of red, blue, yellow, green, and pink against a black background with gold geometric overlay. Also featured are vibrant greenery leaves and puffy clouds or floral motifs in pastel colors. The vases have a large urn design with bronze rim and bases. They feature a series of blue foliage along the bases and have ancient Chinese geometric motifs along the top perimeters. These are unusually tall vases and come the hand-carved mahogany wood bases. Vases measure 26" height without the bases and 29.5"H with the bases. They look amazing with or without the bases.
