Defined by angular shoulders and a flared lip, this pair of tall porcelain vases offer a charming variation of the classic Chinese phoenix-tail vase form. Each vase is patterned with beautifully scripted poetry and enameled scenes of two egrets beneath a flowering lotus plant. This motif is a visual pun for the idiom "may you pass your exams every way" and offers a blessing of success to the young scholar-in-training. A milky white glaze surrounds the colorful scene and two faux-handles sit just below the shoulder, shaped like auspicious fu dog guardians.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
