Chinese Pottery Plant Stand of Sacred Elephant



LOVELY Chinese pottery piece.

This is a plant stand in gorgeous cobalt blue and cream and light blue colors.

It is in the form of a sacred elephant in all its regalia !!

It takes the form of an Elephant dressed in Ceremonial clothing and head-wear.

A decorative plinth sits on top of the elephant’s back for resting a jardiniere and has a central medallion motif.

Contemporary……but highly decorative !!

CHINESE CERAMICS: Chinese ceramic ware shows a continuous development since imperial times and is one of the most significant forms of Chinese art and ceramics. The first types of ceramics were made during the Palaeolithic era. Chinese ceramics range from construction materials such as bricks and tiles, to hand-built pottery vessels fired in bonfires or kilns, to the sophisticated Chinese porcelain wares made for the imperial court. Porcelain is so identified with China that it is still called "china" in everyday English usage.

Most later Chinese ceramics, even of the finest quality, were made on an industrial scale, thus few names of individual potters were recorded. Many of the most renowned workshops were owned by or reserved for the Emperor, and large quantities of ceramics were exported as diplomatic gifts or for trade from an early date.

It is in 'MINT' Condition !!

It is a nice size and would perfectly hold a circular jardiniere with a diameter of 7 inches, or a square one of 7" x 8".
