Antique Chinese Double Gourd Black Glazed Vase, Kuang Hsu Period, China circa 1875

This charming small antique Chinese vessel vase from the Kuang Hsu period in China circa 1875 is of the type known as a double gourd because of the smaller section mounted upon the larger and lower section with their generously sized scale. Gourds are considered symbols of good fortune and longevity in China so this double gourd form is especially auspicious. The intense depth of the midnight black glaze has a beautiful reflective quality and the vase may be a lovely object on its own or used as an actual vase for flowers.
