Chinese Celadon Porcelain Vase with Elephant Head Handles

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Large Chinese celadon porcelain vase elegantly crafted in a classic ovoid egg shape, with raised floral relief design and unique elephant head handles, makes this an important decorative statement for a home or business. In Chinese art, the elephant is a symbol of wisdom and strength. The Chinese characters painted on the bottom, in a very cursive style, have been translated to mean, Ocean Water.
