The wine-jar shaped porcelain bottle is decorated with a fierce dragon pursuing the flaming pearl of wisdom. Underglaze copper-red is notoriously difficult to control in the kiln and in this case it is fired to perfection, strong where required and ephemeral where distant clouds are to be depicted. An old collector’s label on the base.

Approximately 6cm high. Perfect condition.

Please study the photographs.

For new customers resident in China sadly I have to state that I am no longer prepared to accept payment by PayPal. I will accept payment only by bank to bank transfer in British Pounds Sterling (GBP), fees to be paid by the purchaser.
