There be Dragons

Dragons brilliantly painted in vivid colours and varying tones of cobalt blue with characteristic ‘heaping and piling’ effects. Imagine standing there before you two striding five-clawed dragons chasing after one another amidst wispy clouds. Bands of lotus leaves encircling the top of border. Glazed interior well painted with a six-character mark within a blue border on the base.

Chinese antique Jiajing mark Blue and White Dragon Bowl. Two floating dragons under the sea with lotus leaves surrounding the top with just a faint gold leaf border. Sounds like a lucid dream.

The Jiajing mark Period Make”. This is possibly very old of high quality porcelain.
