Why this is a
Masterpiece

This vase is delicately adorned with a relief image of the branches of a flowering cherry tree. It is most interesting in its artistic figurative representation. Furthermore, the vase from the museum’s collection is a perfect specimen of the design options, offered by the cloisonné enamel technique. The craftsman found an appropriate shape for the idea of eternal life.

History of the Object
This vase is executed in the shape of an ancient sacrificial bronze beaker type "hu". The biconical beakers of type "hu" were intended for ritual libation sacrificial wine. This type of ancient beaker survived as a vase with the passage of time. The surface of the vase is decorated with a floral motif from the Ming period. The branches of a cherry tree which cover the body are fixed with a soldering technique. The color combines only opaque enamels: cyan, red, yellow, white, green and black.
