Chinese Ming Dynasty Glazed Pottery Dragon Roof Tile End

This heavy pottery disc is the end of a roof tile. It is decorated with a moulded five-clawed dragon. It is coated in a green glaze that has acquired a silvery iridescence, a result of very long exposure to moisture. It was made during the Ming Dynasty (AD 1368 - 1644) and was presumably originally on the roof of a palace or temple. Diameter 14.5 cm (5.75 inches). It has chips and surface wear as can clearly be seen in our images; it has no repair or restoration.
