A beautiful vase from the Franklin Mint Collection. This vase is a gorgeous piece of art work that makes a statement of grace and elegance. Made from fine porcelain, it has depicted the dogwood tree with four doves perched on its' branches. The colors of the flowers are a deep pink, and light to medium brown for the branches. It has 24K throughout the design and stands approximately 13" tall and is about 8" at its' widest point. Definitely substantial, it can be used to put flowers in; but can just sit there and look amazing! It is hallmarked on the bottom with the Franklin Mint logo, the artist's name, and the year of 1990. It is called "Vase of the Emperor's Nightingale". Absolutely one of those pieces of art that will be treasured and passed down as an heirloom. Two of the doves wings are chipped, but you really can't notice them unless you look for them because of the overall design of the vase which takes your breath away.
