vase (containers)

A tall vase made of wood. The vase has a lacquered surface in gold, black, red, green and blue. The vase tapers towards the base, and flares at the neck. The surface of the container has a floral design. All four sides of the vase have two silhouettes of a vase, coloured in black and red. The neck of the vase has oblong panels, also in black and red. Each panel contains a floral design. The floral design is not only contained within the panels, but covers most of the outside surface. There are three labels on the base of the vase, each detailing the objects associated numbers.
