The Chu Dau BRG Hoa Lam ceramic vase is an artisanal reconstruction of the classical Chu Dau ceramic vase dating back to the Tran – Early Later Le Dynasties (14th - 15th century). The original, ancient version – 54 cm in height and crafted in 1450 – is presently one of Turkey's four national treasures, insured for millions of US dollars and preserved in a place of great prestige at the Topkapi Saray Museum, Istanbul, Turkey.
The vase shoulder is decorated with patterns of office seals, military badges and standards, and tablets of royal commission, all of which represent the social advancements of a man.
The vase body is adorned with the pattern of chrysanthemum flowers, an embodiment of an honest, genuine and successful gentleman, side-by-side with the image of vine flowers, representing the woman ever accompanying the man on his journey to success.
The Hoa Lam vase is usually paired with the Ty Ba vase in a harmonious combination of Yin and Yang.
