Vintage Oriental Pink Porcelain Umbrella Stand With Lotus Flowers and Leaves, Macau China
A very pretty porcelain umbrella stand decorated with lots of lotus flowers. The round body has a continuous theme of enamelled lotus flowers and leaves in various hues of pinks and jade greens. The detailing is quite good, down to prickly stems of the lotus!
Made mid 20th. Century in Macau, an Island off the coast of Southern China, formerly a Portuguese Colony. These pieces are no longer made there.
Spurious square six character seal on underside: Da Qing Tungzhi Nian Zhi - "Great Qing Tungzhi (1862-74) Period Made". Macau enamel c.1960-1970 is not often seen - especially in this particular style and colour.
Chic as well as useful for those umbrellas, walking sticks or golf clubs that need storing..
Dimensions: Dia 9.2", H18". Very good condition.
