Three vases in one! Each part can be used as a separate vase, but once placed on top of each other this stacked vase becomes a true lust for the eyes. The unique gourd-shaped design and hand-painted oriental decoration with dragons, flowers, vines and round flower medallions are based on a Chinese original in the Rijksmuseum. This 18th century original was owned by August the Strong from Dresden, the most important art collector of his time.
