Chinese-Style Art Moderne Pair of Porcelain Moon-Flask Vases, 20th C.
Chinese-Style Art Moderne Pair of Porcelain Moon-Flask Vases, European in Asian style. Such decorations have long been considered de rigeur for elegant homes in the West, whether at Queen Mary's Burliegh House in 16th Century England, or in Astoria, Queens in the 1950s. James Mont, that bad-boy decorator to Mafiosi, enshrined the look.
This pair of vases date to the mid-20th Century. The dragons wiggle across the surfaces in aqua-green on one side, and in puce-purple on the other side. The elephant-head style ornamental handles just add another element of amusement to the vases.
Excellent condition, as issued. 8 1/4" H. Perfect anywhere in the home.
