The round rouleau vase is named for its resemblance to a rouleau. It features a dish-shaped mouth, a short neck, rounded shoulders, a long cylindrical belly, a rounded base, as well as a flat-cut two-layer platform. The size of the rouleau vase varies, with a large one about 70 cm high and a small one only about 10 cm high. The belly is available in different heights and thicknesses. The thick-bellied ones are dignified in shape, usually about 44 cm in height, while the thin-bellied ones are elegant and graceful. The rouleau vases during the early days under the reign of Emperor Kangxi were short and thick, and after the middle period, they became slender and long, and were called "hard rouleau vases" to distinguish them from those during the reign of Emperor Yongzheng. The auspicious motifs of the golden Dragon and the dancing phoenix are popular among the people.
The Dragon is the symbol of the emperor and the phoenix is the symbol of the woman, with the phoenix serving as a decorative motif. The Auspicious Golden Dragon Vase has a majestic Dragon head with gleaming eyes, and a robust Dragon body; the peony flowers on the body of the vase are in full bloom. The golden Dragon, featuring the integration of body and spirit, brings blessings for the prosperity and success for the brilliance of life.
The peony patterns are often endowed with the symbolic meaning of continuity and prosperity. The golden Dragon was mostly dedicated to the royal family, with a neat and gorgeous appearance on official objects such as Dragon robes, official uniforms, official residence and other auxiliary ornaments, implying the eternal stability of the country and the perpetual rise of imperial power. Nowadays, it has been widely applied to the decorative fields of furniture, jade carving and architecture for all levels of society, mostly for the blessings for longevity.
