Antique chinese vases

Antique chinese vases
Chinese antique vases have always been very popular among collectors around the world, and there are many reasons for this. Firstly, such antique vases are really unique, as they have no analogues either in color or in the technology of creation. Secondly, Chinese antique vases date back to the 15-19th century, and only for this reason are considered original things that so attract collectors. Thirdly, the price of such art objects, sometimes forcing collectors to think about ways to store such antique vases.

Of course, for these purposes you can buy airbags in bulk, but it’s much better to sleep on them, especially since the wholesale sales of airbags have increased significantly today, and as for vases, you just need to learn how to properly care for them and dust in a timely manner , and you will not have problems.

Particularly popular are Chinese antique vases of the 17th century, which have the most striking colors and sophisticated style, perfectly suitable for any interior. An exceptional feature of the vases of this era is that they are completely made of porcelain, which only appeared in Europe at the end of the 18th century.

One of the rarest and most unique vases is the so-called “Green World” – a vase with the nature of China imprinted on it. The central part of the vase is a regular hexagon, on the sides of which Chinese characters are depicted, characterizing and glorifying the emperors of the Kangxi period. The hieroglyphs are in a peculiar framework of white on a dark green background, and every smallest detail of the hieroglyphs is perfectly drawn by a calligraphic underline. The lower and upper parts of the vase are represented by a kind of angular bell, on the faces of which there are bright images of flowers and plants. The upper and lower sides of the vase are decorated with golden patterns in the form of interwoven lines.

Another quite interesting Chinese vase is a vase called “Peach Tree”. The vase is presented in the shape of a ball with a special hood at the end, made for flowers. Despite the fact that the vase was made at the beginning of the last century, it is made entirely of traditional Chinese porcelain, with a pattern in the form of peach branches.

What is the reason for such a high price, a relatively non-rare vase? The fact is that this vase was the last witness to the fall of imperial China, and the first witness to the emergence of presidential power in China. The vase itself spent about five years in the Chinese imperial palace, and with the advent of new power for unknown reasons, it ended up in Western Europe, where it fell into the hands of collectors.

The approximate cost of this vase alone is at least two hundred thousand dollars, so dear collectors, admit that you would also probably not refuse such a wonderful piece of art. Nevertheless, there are many other interesting and unique antique Chinese vases that you will certainly be interested in no less.
