A study in blue! Rich shades from pale indigo to cobalt to turquoise complement the rusty red background of this gorgeous cloisonné vase. The bold colors are particularly striking on a dark background, but will bring drama and beauty to any shelf or corner...add an air plant to make a lively vignette.
Hint: treasures embellished with peonies (a symbol of love and happiness) make a thoughtful gift.
Vintage glass enamel and metal. This piece was acquired in China in the early 1980’s and maintains its original “Made in China” sticker and wooden stand. Approximately 5.25” tall, 1.25” to 3” wide. In very good condition with one tiny area (2/8”) of surface damage to enamel (see detail photo); no damage to metal.
Peonies (genus Paeonia) are native to China and naturally occur in most colors but blue - although a cultivated blue-ish version exists. The plant may have been used for flavoring, but is more commonly known as an element in ancient Chinese medicine.
