The vases have beautiful attached celadon porcelain stands (that cannot be removed). This is most unusual and lovely on the Chinese vases. Peach trees with peaches & blossoms cover over half of each vase. The other half of the vases has caligraphy written in black. The ground is white and decorated in colors of rose, pink, green, brown, yellow, orange and celadon.
Two graceful bats fly above the peaches on the necks of the vases. The vases are a nice size at 10 3/4 high including the attached celadon stands and weighing 705.4 grams each. Each vase has a period mark in blue that represents "Qianlong Period Make". The Qianlong mark was from 1736 - 1795 and is often been copied by later artisans in homage.
I found several examples of this mark on Chinese porcelain dated "before 1949", "1940s" and "Early People's Republic (1949 - 1966)". The vases are vintage mid-20th Century based on this mark. Peaches and bats often appear together in Chinese art. The peaches symbolize longevity and are one of the "three abundances" in Chinese art.
The bats sumbolize good fortune and happiness. This peaches & bats design is highly prized by collectors of Chinese art and antiques. The vases are in excellent vintage condition with expected wear. There could be small surface scratches and minor paint loss. I could not find any chips, cracks, hairlines, repairs or damage to the vases.
