by Okura Art China

2019 will have marked the 30th year since Japan's Emperor Akihito acceded to the throne.

Commemorating the 30th Anniversary of his throne and the 60th Anniversary of his Marriage with Empress Michiko, Okura has created a special edition of vase "Houou Maihiren (Phoenix and Dancing Princess Lotus)"
Maihiren Lotus also called as "Princess Michiko's Lotus".
The Imperial Couple (then) who just got married, brought back yellow lotus seeds from the United States. Dr. Ichiro Ohga who made them flowered named it "Prince Lotus" after His Imperial Highness Prince.
After that, he successfully bloomed a hybrid breed of Prince Lotus and an ancient lotus species and named it "Maihiren" after the beauty of Princess Michiko.
The lotus presented to the imperial family has been grown with care in the pond of the Imperial Palace till today.

[Description of the design patterns]
Designed Maihiren Lotus fully bloomed and Phoenix popular as a "Kicho pattern (auspicious omens pattern)" since ancient times. The pattern drawn on the lower part of the vase is called "Renben (Lotus petals)" in which lotus petals are drawn continuously and repeatedly. Pomegranates, which are the symbol of descendants of prosperity and fertility, are patterned.
The pattern on the top is an arabesque design with grapes. It is also a "Kicho pattern" that symbolizes prosperity as grapes grow in abundance.
