Pair Japanese CLOISONNE VASES

Subject: Red-Headed CRANES amongst floriated design.

Right & Left facing as a PAIR

The art design features the Red-crowned Crane and can be found in their safe haven of Zhalong, Heilongjiang, the most northern province of China. These red-crowned cranes have a special place in Chinese culture as an ancient symbol of immortality. Pine trees and Red-crowned Cranes both being symbols of longevity can be used in wishing people a long life.

Note: I believe that these vases are of Japanese origin because of the fineness of the artwork. Whilst I have described the fact that these birds are found in China, they are also found nesting in the wetlands of Hokkaido in Japan.
