The rooster has the distinction of being the only bird in the Chinese 12 zodiac cycle. A popular motif in Chinese art, the rooster symbolizes many auspicious messages: its Chinese character, “ji”, is a homonym for “luck”; its cockscomb, “ji guan”, was said to resemble a scholar-official’s hat. In the case of this vase, the multiple roosters layered on top of each other conveys the message “guan shang jia guan”, meaning “to add rank upon rank.”
This piece is in very good condition and stands tall at 45.6 cm / 18 inches.
