Good condition

This Chinese set in cloisonne enamel

It consists of 2 parts:
A large plate on which a vase, which can contain plants, is placed. The basin is enamelled on the outside and inside and it lies on a metal base.

All this is set on a small black wooden table with three legs, made in Europe for the room with a groove on the table, which prevents the plate from falling.

The basic is decorated on the inside with various fish and with flowers on the outside.
The vase is decorated with Tao Tie head masks.
The basin and the vase have geometric design edges on the top and bottom.
All of this in cloisonne enamel technique, in white, navy blue, yellow, grape red and green colours on a turquoise back.

The dimensions of the table are: Height 76 cm
The diameter of the table top: 45 cm

The basin: Diameter 66 cm
Height: 12.5 cm
Pedestal: height 4 cm, diameter: 40 cm

The vase: Height: 26 cm
Diameter of top opening: 20 cm
Max. diameter: 30 cm
Diameter of pedestal at bottom: 20 cm

Everything in good condition. The basin and vase are water resistant.
This vase is a family piece. I inherited it from my parents. It has been decorating our living room until today. My grandfather inherited it from his father. This vase has been an exotic piece of great value for my family. It has been said that my great-grandfather, or even his father bought it in China...
