The Twined Lotus, known as “缠枝莲” (Chán zhī lián) in Chinese, is a type of twined pattern commonly used to decorate porcelain. The design consists of lotus flowers intertwined with each other, hence the name “缠枝莲” (Twined Lotus). The twined pattern is also referred to as “万寿藤” (Wàn shòu téng), which symbolizes good fortune and auspiciousness. Its continuous and interconnected structure represents the concept of “endless vitality” or “eternal life”. The pattern is derived from the refinement and transformation of a vine or curling grass, resulting in a graceful and dynamic design that is both elegant and vivid. The twined pattern originated in the Han Dynasty and became popular during the Southern and Northern Dynasties, Sui and Tang Dynasties, Song and Yuan Dynasties, and Ming and Qing Dynasties.
