 "SOLD" Thank you Turkey 
Of cylindrical form with a cylindrical neck, well hollowed with a recessed,flat unglazed circular foot,decorated with a continuous frieze of two imperial five-clawed dragons chasing a flaming pearl through the clouds. The stopper is carved glass in the form of a dragon with a green glass collar.The painting on the bottle is unusually precise and the copper-red has fired to an ideal color with no bleeding. It is very likely that this unmarked bottle was produced late in the Qianlong reign and came from the the IMPERIAL,JINGDE ZHEN KILNS,1770-1800. Size:2 3/4"high.The bottle is covered with a transparent glaze.Condition:Excellent.
