Vintage Oriental Vase/ Lamp Base: Perfect

Certified Price

$75 Or best offer






Posted on November 21, 2017.

Selling a tall oriental vase, with a brightly colored oriental flower and vines motif.
The brightly-colored glazes have been artfully applied to the vase, with predominately blue, orange & yellow stylized blossoms, amidst scrolling vines on a pure white porcelain background. The square vase burnt orange Chinese symbols on the body. A charming touch is are blue elephant heads on the left and right of the vase.

Measurements: Overall: 16.5" H, 5" W, at the base, which slopes the widest part of the vase, 7 7/8" W. The opening at the vase top is 5.5".

The colored glazes are meticulously applied with their outlines, a sign of quality workmanship.
Despite the quality, the bottom is plain, without an indication of its country of origin. A similar decorate bowl on 1stdibs was from Italy.

I purchased this vase, about five years ago at a yard sale in NW DC near Politics and Prose, a well-known bookstore. I intended to make it into a lamp, but my color scheme changed.

Price $75 OBO. Reduced from $125
Terms: Cash or Square Cash Only. You must see this vase in person. No scammers.
If you would like this shipped, let me know, so the total purchase price will include shipping via UPS. There are no returns if it is shipped.
