Chinese Garden Gates were either very simply understated or very elaborate and ornate. In either case, the garden gate represented privacy, and with that privacy, affluence. Most valuable land within the city walls were the gardens. Garden Gates allowed entrance to those gardens, and they became a symbol of wealth and success.The 4 1/2" x 9" vase and polished river rock provide the anchor for our Garden Gate ArrangementThis design lends itself to different size arrangements, each larger and grander than the previous. The height option measures from the botton of the stem to the top of the tallest stem in the arrangement. All of the arrangements are of the same width and vary only in height.The pictured arrangement is the 30" version.
