With a flaring lip and striking profile, connoisseurs often refer to these exquisite vases as “turnip-shaped”. Each was crafted out of bronze over two centuries ago, and is decorated with a silver inlay garden scene. The bases are signed with the name “Shih So.” A highly skilled craftsman would have created each pattern by hammering thin strips of silver into the etched bronze surface.
