Vauen: Shanghai (3238) (9mm)

Product Number: 002-457-1509

This Shanghai's shape is a variation of an uncommon them--close to the Urn, most typically seen from the Pesaro school, it is a design strictly Italian in proportion, but with a more modernized stylization in the flaring rim. The Shanghai's palette, I suspect, is meant to recall the city's traditional Chinese heritage--yellow, a corresponding to earth, prestige, and considered the most beautiful and important color, and brown, the hue of industriousness; the pairing of which is considered to be profoundly lucky.
