French Famille-Rose Vase – 漢來大飯店 (The Grand Hi Lai Hotel)

Posted by & filed under .

This is a Sèvres porcelain vase with excellent tradition. Obtaining a monopoly right of gold-coating and colour-painting from Louis XV, the vase has lively and gorgeous decorative arts which cannot be made in other kilns. Coloured patterns depict themes about aristocrats’ easy, carefree and luxurious life.  A series of pink patterns are decorated on the pure white vase. So the colour tone looks cheerful. Cupid appears here and looks at groups of bees picking up honey from flowers. The whole vase has spiralled and twisted designs in its many areas. Its golden lines have their moderate rhythms. Those above reflect the fashion of royal aristocrats’ enjoyable self-indulgence.
