Taiwan ROC Chinese Chariot Tang Horse Bottle Vase with Meander Pattern

Taiwan ROC Chinese Chariot Tang Horse Bottle Vase with Meander Pattern

A vintage 1940s black and white Republic of China Taiwan Dynasty Reproduction bottle vase inscribed at the neck with a saying from the Book of Rites in Confucian literature: 'When the great way prevails, the world community is equally shared by all' and featuring a procession of oriental warriors wearing ceremonial armor, marching in front of a Chinese tang horse and what looks to be a horse-drawn chariot. The ceramic vase is finished with a jet black glaze, with the textured decoration then carved into the pottery form. The heavy Grecian-style vase also features Chinese calligraphy and a meander / Greek key pattern around the  bottle vase top.

This vase is substantial, weighing 3-3/4 lbs, prepacked.  It stands a stately 13 inch in height, with a rim diameter of 3-1/4 inch and a width of approx. 7 inch, at the widest point.  It's in very good vintage condition, with no chips or cracks, and only a couple of small, superficial scratches in the black glaze. 

The red foil label is worn by time, but is marked Dynasty Reproduction / Taiwan Republic of China.

Customer Reviews
I received my mugs today and I could not be happier. Packaged with great care, lovely card to say thank you, and all intact. They are better than expected, with the size I really wanted, thinner rim for sipping coffee and hot chocolate. I really have a thing for pottery mugs and these are great quality and wonderful drip glaze. Flashback Alley owner Holly is wonderful to work with, great communication, extra service all along. Thank you again! I love them.

The packages of Royal Doulton tea cups and dinner plates arrived in perfect condition. I could not be happier with the merchandise. Holly is personable and cares about the quality of the product as well as the packaging. Holly is a pleasure to work with and I will be shopping at Flashback Alley in the future. I'm so glad I found Flashback Alley!
