welcome to my shopan eclectic mix of antique, vintage and contemporary home furnishings for a collected home ♥
14" Chinese Pink Lotus & Mandarin Ducks Quatrefoil Vase
Beautiful green, pink and blue Chinoiserie vases in a unique quatrefoil (four leaves) shape featuring four panels: two depicting two Mandarin ducks facing each other and surrounded by pink lotus florals, while the another two panels feature more pink lotus flowers and dragon flies.
The beauty of this vase is that you can rotate it in place for a couple of different looks. Size is very versatile and can be displayed anywhere in the home.
This design is full of symbolism: the pink lotus signifies the ultimate purity of the heart and mind because it rises untainted and beautiful from the mud. The Mandarin Ducks are the symbol of eternal devotion; they are said to mate for life and live in harmony until one dies. Rather than live in loneliness the legends says the surviving duck soon allows itself to perish.
There are two vases available - they are identical except the pink is a bit more muted in one of them
They appear to have been hand-painted and glazed over. This would explain the slight differences between the two pieces

All orders ship out of our San Diego, CA warehouse and those in the IS will arrive within 2-9 days, depending on the shipping method selected.
We use USPS and UPS as our preferred shipping carriers as we're able to use discounted commercial shipping rates. At the time of shipping, we will select the most cost efficient and expeditious option for your order (USPS Priority/UPS Ground or 3 Day Select) - the less a package is in transit, the better chances of a safe arrival are.
Our website is integrated with USPS and UPS which means that shipping costs are automatically calculated during checkout based on your shipping address and size and weight of the box. That said, calculations are not always precise, particularly for multi product orders. If final shipping costs end up being less than what you paid, we will refund you the difference and if it ends up being more, we will bear that cost.
We do not charge any mark ups, handling fees or shipping insurance costs to our customers. We provide complimentary shipping insurance on all orders to protect you against damage that may occur during transit. We have safely shipped hundreds of fragile orders and we expertly package the porcelain and glass orders so you can rest assured that your order will arrive to you safely.
Due to significant new tax and customs implications as a result of Brexit, we are suspending all of our deliveries to the UK effective January 1, 2021. We apologize to our UK customers but as a small business we are unable to take on the large amount of requirements.
