Early 20th Century Lotus Flower Chinese Peking Vase
This is a beautiful early 20th century, red overlay Chinese Peking glass vase with a lotus flower design.
The delicate Lotus flower has been infused with religious and spiritual meaning for centuries. The Lotus is one of the most significant flowers in Chinese culture. Because the striking lotus flower blooms grows directly in muddy, murky waters it represents rebirth and beauty. The lotus flower is often referred to in Buddhism as a symbol of strength in the midst of adversity. The lotus also symbolizes the holy seat of Buddha. The sacred lotus flower is often depicted in Chinese art, poetry and architecture. Specifically red lotus flowers represent life and celebration.
This is a gorgeous, turn of the century, vase from China. This piece is in excellent condition—there are no chips, scratches, breaks, or cracks visible to the naked eye. This elegant vase displays a raised cut design of deep red glass on a white body. The blooming lotus flowers reach up and around the entire vase. The designs have beautiful line quality and flower definition. There are no marks or labels, which is characteristic of Chinese pieces from this period. The white body of the vase has a lovely translucent quality which glows when light hits it.
This piece measures approximately 7 inches tall and has an approximate circumference of 11 inches. The base of the vase has a diameter of 2 1/2 inches. This piece weighs approximately 377.5 grams.
This stunning vase would make an unforgettable gift or fabulous addition to your collection!
