This is a lovely looking pair of Chinese Cloisonne Enamel Baluster shaped metal vases that feature two flaming five-clawed yellow Imperial dragons chasing the flaming pearl of knowledge. The five clawed dragon is known as the Imperial dragon because it represents the Emperor of China and is the most prestigious symbol found on Chinese works of art.
These vases are in generally very good condition. There is just one small loss of enamel to one of the vases, near the bottom in the green area below the dragon and a couple of small marks on the same vase (see photos).They are of a good size measuring 9 inches (24.5 cms) tall and 4 inches (10.5 cms) across the widest part of the vase. These were probably produced in the first half of the 20th century. There are no makers marks that I can see on the underside of the bases. It is not often that you find these type of vases and for their age in such great condition, so don't miss out.
