Our vase with a long neck presents a mountains landscape decor in pastel shades, animated with a lonely tree on its main face growing in the mountain range and standing in front of a resinous trees forest. The other face is adorned with the continuity of this same landscape, we can see a waterfall that a sat man is contemplating. The vase lays on a pedestal depicting a frieze of Neo-classic motifs painted in gold on the read background.
