Flowers of the Four Seasons Plate
Size: Dia 20cm
The Flowers of the Four Seasons motif is one of the most famous in Chinese art and culture, with each flower bearing symbolic significance. Amongst their many virtues, the peony represents spring, good fortune and nobility, the lotus summer, purity and fertility, the chrysanthemum symbolises autumn, friendship and intellectual pursuits, and the plum blossom winter, hope and longevity.
Lushly sculpted Flowers of the Four Seasons provide an auspicious border to a satin finish pewter plate equally suitable as a personal or corporate gift. Subtle 24K gilding adds a hint of luxury.
