Blue and White Chinese Porcelain Vase Made in the Kangxi Era
This Kangxi porcelain vase dates to the early 18th century. It is fully adorned with luxuriant, hand painted, floral scrolls and layered chrysanthemums against a vivid cobalt blue background. Painted in a spontaneous style, vigorous chrysanthemums have been a beloved emblem of a scholar or official’s integrity and dignity in Chinese culture for over a thousand years. The fresh fragrance of the flower was and is popular both in the past and present alike. As a symbol of the fall season when many other blossoms wither, blooming chrysanthemums represent endurance and perseverance. This beautiful blue and white vase with its smart design would be a perfect décor to add vibrancy and courage to a traditional or contemporary home in this challenging time.
