1. JARDINIERE
China: 15th / 16th century
13" x 25" x 25" (33 x 64 x 64cm)

A rare marble jardinière, the short foot rising to
gently curving sides, underneath the overhanging
flattened rims, carved in relief to the exterior. With
continuous designs of cloud scrolls, the interior
plain, with drainage hole and wood bung.

Note: Clouds representing the celestial realm,
happiness and good fortune. This positive
symbolism is related to the fact that clouds are
associated with rain. Similar pieces from the
Yuhuayuan. The imperial garden constructed during
the early Ming period, situated in the Forbidden
City.
