A striking Chinese Famille Noire porcelain baluster vase with delicately enameled cranes, chrysanthemums, lotus flowers, birds, butterflies, fruit and stylized borders.
In Chinese culture, cranes are venerated as the prince of all feathered creatures. Embodying longevity and peace, cranes are often used as symbols of longevity, so this beautiful vase would be a great wedding gift.
It displays beautifully and the hues of pink, yellow, green, orange, purple and blue against the black enameled porcelain create a beautiful and striking contrast.
