Black enamel over brass with Mother of Pearl inlay, vintage mid-century Korean vase with a floral and bird design.

This beautiful, elegant vase is sure to make a stylish statement in any home! The shiny black enamel over bronze contrasts beautifully with the mother of pearl inlay scene. The birds on the flowers glisten with a rainbow of colors as the light hits the design.

We believe this vase came back as a gift with our uncle/great-uncle after he returned from the Korean War. It has been used, as there are water marks around the rim you can see in the photo of the top. There is also just a little bit of rust inside (just one small area). For its age, though, it’s in very good shape! The mother of pearl inlay is intact, and there are very few marks on the outside of the vase (water spots, light scratches visible under bright light). It just needs a place of honor and some flowers to shine again:-)

It’s a tall vase, standing about 13 1/4 inches high. The base is 4 1/2 inches wide – it’s about 5 1/2 to 6 inches wide in the middle. The mouth of the vase is 3 3/4 inches at the top, with the inner opening measuring about 1 3/4 inches.

This vase will ship via U.S. Priority Mail with Insurance and Delivery Confirmation. It weighs almost 1 pound 5 ounces, and requires a larger box, so the shipping price has been calculated to match the final weight.

**Priority shipping costs are based on an East Coast destination,if you live in a closer zone, any excess over $1 will be refunded.**

Combined shipping is available, but we’ll need to know the weight of all purchases in order to provide an accurate quote.
