Document holder - Vase Thousand Flowers
The visual of this document holder is inspired by the vase "Thousand Flowers" of the Qin dynasty (1644-1911).
Legacy Grandidier, 1911.
This « Thousand Flowers » vase, adorned with hundreds of intermingled chrysanthemums, peonies, lilies, morning glories, magnolias, roses and lotuses, resembles a sumptuous brocade. The decorative features, with their delicately shaded colours, not only derive from careful observation but also reveal an intense feeling for volume. The result is a work of unsurpassed accomplishment, in which the vivid enamels combine to create an ever-changing interplay of impressionistic force.
