Beautiful temple jars that are certainly statement pieces and will grace any interior either as a stand alone or part of a display of other such items. Cranes and their meaning in Chinese mythology.In China, the crane is legendary for being the prince of all feathered creatures on earth. Being the symbol of longevity and peace, the crane is the most favoured bird symbol next to the Phoenix. At a population of 541 million in 1949 it was the worlds most populous country. These are indeed lovely jars but naturally as one would expect they are time worn, there are no cracks as such to these jars but wear and tear.
The lids have a few nibbles here and there but no large chips. The rims being the same. The insides are empty but stained with time especially being white they are discoloured but clean. The body of the jars again have no cracks just here and there tiny little nibbles or flea bites I would say. Overall considering their age they are quite stunning more as a pair (harlequin) than alone.I have collected oriental China especially jars for years and love hem but you need space to show them correctly. If you should have any further questions regarding this item then please send me a message and I shall endeavour to return to you within a time frame if 24 hours.

Please take this into account when and if you make an offer this is included within the price. This item is in the category "Antiques\Asian/Oriental Antiques\Chinese\Porcelain".
