This vintage Chinese baluster cloisonné floor urn is a study in beautiful shades of blue—powder blue, through turquoise and violet to midnight blue—on a white background. The pattern of starburst flowers, scrolling foliage and leaves is exceptionally crisp due to the “cloisonner” process that defines each small area of enameled color within its own brass wire “cage.” The pattern is sparked with touches of cinnabar red. A three-inch band of the cloisonné pattern encircles the inner surface of the flared top. The remainder of the inside surface, as well as the recessed bottom, are coated with turquoise enamel. This very decorative urn is from the 1950s, and is in excellent condition. The wood stand, carved with scrolling to complement the cloisonné design, adds three inches to its height. Dimensions of the urn and stand: height 23” (58.5 cm), diameter 12” (30.5 cm). SEE MORE ITEMS IN OUR COLLECTION AT WWW.SILKROAD1.COM
