Gold accented ornate handles extend up from the bulbous body to connect to the neck of the vase. The main decoration on the front is the beautiful hand painted peonies done in mauve, pink and cream on burgundy stems. He has place variegated green leaves with some having burgundy and pink tips amongst the flowers. The artist has outlined and accented the flowers, leaves and stems with gold. The back side of the vase has a similar decoration only smaller. There are no chips or cracks on this piece. Some of the turquoise enamel spots appear to have been repainted but at a few feet away it is not noticeable at all. It is however totally crazed, which gives it an elegant old look.

TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IF PRESENT IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
