Pair of Chinese Celadon Blue Double Gourd Vases

$1,680per set

About

The graceful, hourglass form of these contemporary vases dates back as far as the Song dynasty (960 to 1279). Known as huluping or double gourd vases, the traditional form emulates the shape of calabashes, or bottle gourds, symbols of health, longevity, and good luck. The sculptural vessels are the perfect canvas for a crackled celadon blue glaze, contrasted at the lip by a warm brown and finished with a glossy, transparent overglaze.
