Finest, Chinese Qing Dynasty lapis lazuli elephant effigy & gilt bronze cloisonne Gu vase. The lapis lazuli screen is brilliant blue with silver and golden hue inclusion adorned with colorful semi-precious stones is a masterpiece of workmanship. The generous Lapis-Lazuli carved in shape of a caparisoned standing figure of an elephant, with white-celadon jade tusks, with its hump covered with gilt bronze cloisonne blanket carrying GU shape vase with an inverted neck and flared rim on its back, decorated with colorful enamel filled cloisonne works details on the howda. The Elephant - is the last of the four Animals of Power and Energy. It represents strength, sagacity, and prudence. The phrase 'elephant rider' in Chinese sounds similar to 'fortunate' or 'auspicious'. This pairing announces the arrival of good fortune. The elephant is considered an auspicious animal because the Chinese character for elephant has the same pronunciation as the Chinese word for auspicious or lucky . The elephant is sometimes shown carrying a treasure vase on its back. Since the word vase has the same pronunciation as the word for peace , the implied meaning is may you have good luck and peace. Elegantly presented upon gilt bronze enamel cloisonne works rectangular pedestal stands. A portion of this high-grade lapis lazuli is considered quite rare. The composition is sophisticated and the stone colors and vivid cloisonne works are simply a feast for the eye.

Mark on base, a four script -KaiShu- characters, Made in The Years of Qianlong Reign Period.
