Pair of vases


Glazed pottery with decoration moulded and painted in enamel colours and gold | 46.3 x 20.5 x 20.5 cm (whole object) | RCIN 152

This pair of vases represents spring (cherry blossom) and autumn (chrysanthemums) respectively. Both plants seem to dissolve into the cream glaze of the vases, suggesting the fleeting nature of each season. Porcelain in this style was displayed to resounding success at the world exhibition in Paris in 1867.
