A splendid Chilong Dragon with a bifurcated tail is presented on the front of this unusual bottle. The material is limestone of a dark hue but under decent lighting exhibits a snowstorm of whitish inclusions.

Approximately 6.6 cm high. Fine condition. The coral stopper is not original.

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.

Please note that all purchases will be sent by registered mail and a signature will be required upon delivery.
