Very large Chinese enamel jardinière on hardwood stand
Chinese, 20th Century
Height 127cm, diameter 116cm
This exceptionally large cloisonné enamel jardinière is a superb example of 20th Century Chinese design. The jardinière is of traditional form, rising from a narrow foot to a flared shoulder and culminating in a rolled rim. The body is profusely adorned with cloisonné enamel designs over the white enamel ground: dragons, waves, floral patterns, and other motifs abound. The piece is supported by a wooden stand, each of the stand’s four legs ornately carved and finished.
