CHINESE AMPHORA SHAPE OXBLOOD VASE

Recently, I have been fortunate to come across a stunning and rarely shaped oxblood vase. The deep red glaze has a smooth texture, which compliments the thin and delicate amphora shape of the vase. This late 19th/early 20th century vase has a slender body with an elongated neck, resulting in an impressive visual display. An everted mouth rim further enhances the profile of this vase. In addition, the rim of the mouth is with an ivory color, while at the base, a light celadon color is featured. Both of these colors accent this luxurious shade of oxblood handsomely. I have a deep admiration for the warm shade of oxblood on this vase, as the color is pure and rich. Along with the coloring, I respect the shape of the vase itself — as the everted mouth contrasts beautifully with the soft convex line in the body. Thank you.

Here is a link to the website where the vase is located:  http://trocadero.com/chinacoast/

Cheers,

Natasha
