This beautiful Chinoiserie Vase is expertly handpainted and glazed with the Double Happiness symbol. For the self proclaimed "lover of beautiful things."
Double Happiness is an ancient Chinese symbol traditionally used as an ornament in design and decoration, especially on Asian pottery. In China, the symbol represents love (and marriage). Double happiness is actually used as a ligature, composed of two Chinese characters; meaning joy. Happiness Together, would be an appropriate name for this symbolism.
This fabulous little vase has such beautiful handpainted details, and we love the unique tiny Foo Dog Guardian handles. This beautiful double happiness vase is the perfect size for literally any vignette, and will look stunning in any home decor setting. Lore and Lotus
History of Chinoiserie
Traditional and wildly popular since the 1700's, Chinoiserie, or the replicated appearance of Chinese art forms, namely the renowned porcelain blue and white ceramics, have made a statement in households for centuries, though its roots go much farther back than that in the Chinese art forms.
