Description

Epitomizing the enduring appeal of chinoiserie porcelains, this beautiful Hand-Painted Blue and Light Blue Moon in the Lotus Pond Jar is a functional work of art and makes an elegant statement. Made in China.

Museum Story

All the rage in 17th and 18th century Europe, chinoiserie was a European interpretation of Chinese décor—especially multicolor AND blue and white porcelains. Still popular today, our classic chinoiserie collection celebrates the enduring appeal of this beautiful style, fine examples of which are curated by our National Museum of American History and our Cooper-Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum.

The packaging process has adhesive cushioning glued to the lid lip to keep from damage, but it was extremely difficult to remove and left the lid coloring damaged once the residue was off. Hasn't anyone from QC ever attempted to remove the tape residue before?? Please find a different solution or adhesive tape to protect the lid. It broke my heart to give it as a gift and the lid lip was left slightly discolored. Especially as how expensive the piece is to purchase. Beautiful piece though. Truly.
