The sound of "vase" is the same as the character "harmony, peace, or safe" in Chinese language. In ancient Chinese wood work, the vase symbol is often created as an auspicious
symbol to bless a home. The carved Ling-Zhi medicinal mushroom as ornaments represents the prosperity (abundance) while it is a healing herb use din Chinese medicine. The latticework is specially created in a style in Chinese woodwork called "Yi Zi Teng (一字藤, One-Character Vine) as one can see the one line of the latticework continues through the object shape (the vase) as well as the frame that frames the object. It is a popular design used in Chinese woodwork during the Qing period to imply the continuity of life and generations. Also, in Chinese art, it is always more special and therefore more valuable to have a pair of objects than two singular similar pieces together.
