China had a monopoly on porcelain production
until relatively recently, and porcelain is also often called
"china" in English. Large vases such as this one's patterns
were used to decorate the entryways, foyers, halls, and chambers
of rulers and rich landowners. They bring a eye catching style
to any room.
This vase measures 11 inches tall
capped, and has a base of 4 1/2 inches. It is about 9 inches
at its widest, and weighs 4 pounds, 1 ounce.

stored for some time. However, there do not seem to be any cracks,
chips, or crazing on the piece. Both the flowers and birds that
adorn this item are bold and colorful.

to anyone looking to spice up the visual appeal of their living
room, this Chinese vase is a great buy!
