The neck of this delicate bronze vase from China in the 16th-17th century is wound round with a flowering branch of wild plum or mei hua. The blossoms of this tree have often been hailed in Chinese lyrical poetry. The tree in blossom announces the arrival of spring. The wild plum is also the symbol of a person of impeccable honesty, with commitment and stamina. The tree, after all, stays alive even through harsh frosts. A branch with fresh buds of delicate pink, white or yellow blossom is one of the most popular ornamentations used in Chinese applied arts.
