Chinese Ming Dynasty Turquoise Glazed Dragon Vase
This interesting vase dates to the second half of the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644). Each side features a moulded dragon against a background of waves and clouds. It is made from a pale stoneware and was most likely made in Shanxi province in the north of China. The outer surface, and inner mouth, are coated in a attractive and finely-crackled turquoise glaze.
Height 21 cm (8.25 inches). A small amount of glaze has flaked from one side of the neck and been touched-in and there is a small kiln scar to the nose of one dragon. Overall, very good condition.
