Product Details

  • We offer this very fine antique Chinese porcelain lidded box of rounded shape decorated with a five claw Imperial dragon chasing a flaming pearl over the waves and believed to date from the 19th century. This finely made rounded box stands on a narrow rounded foot with an unglazed rim to the base and with a painted decoration of waves to the bottom half. The box has a raised unglazed lip to the bottom section with the cover fitting neatly and securely over this. The inside of the box is glazed with a fine crackle to the glaze and the lid is painted a scrolling dragon chasing a flaming pearl through clouds and smoke. The box is not marked.
