A replica of a Gu-shaped porcelain vase with a flowers and birds design, based on an original antiquity from ancient China. The vase measures 33cm tall.
The original piece is a fine porcelain vase that dates to the Kangxi Reign during the Qing Dynasty (1661-1722). The vase is Gu-shaped, meaning it has a tall and slender shape with a slightly flared base and mouth. Gu vessels (characterised by this shape) were used to drink wine or for special rituals in ancient Chinese culture.
This reproduction, made by Shanghai Museum Art Company, replicates the original using special craftsmanship techniques.
