A LARGE CHINESE DRAGON DISH, KANGXI, 17th C.
A fine and large porcelain dish featuring two confronting dragons disputing the ownership of the flaming pearl, all within an attractive border of breaking waves. The back of the plate is decorated with auspicious symbols and within the foot-rim is an apocryphal six-character Ming Chenghua reign mark sometimes found on wares from the early Kangxi period.
10.5/8 inches (27 cm) diameter. There is fritting to the edge, mostly apparent on the back and a stabilized hairline, almost invisible especially from the front.
Please study the photographs.
I am based in the United Kingdom so charges made to credit cards are in GBP ( British Pounds ) and your credit card issuer automatically converts the charge to the currency of your country. Payment may also be made by direct bank transfer in GBP. International Money Orders or Cashiers’ Checks in GBP are also accepted. I am sorry but I cannot accept a cash transfer payment by Western Union as I don’t have an office nearby.
