This urn, which sits next to the desk I just posted at The Society of California Pioneers, is painted porcelain on enamel.

The Society of California Pioneers has a bevy of Chinese and other Asian artifacts, as the Asian experience is vital to California's history. It wasn't always a friendly relationship, as other items in the museum showed.

The colors on this particular urn are just amazing.

From my recent trip to the Society of California Pioneers...

    These look like gorgeous Chinese Famille Rose vases.

    Thanks Savoychina- I knew it had to be one of the roses, lol. Either way, they are beautiful aren't they.
