Stunning Chinese 7 Diam Blue & White Dish with Dragons Chasing Flaming Pearl. (Amazing piece of blue and white Chinese art at its absolute best). Mid to late Victorian blue & white Chinese porcelain shallow dish in amazing condition, Chinese porcelain at its very best.

It is traditionally decorated with Dragons chasing flaming pearls, which against the pearl white background of the porcelain, is beautifully depicted. The 7 diameter dish has a seal mark of Chinese characters to the base, but the real feature is that the artist using the blue glazing to portray these mythical symbols is stunning. One of the very best dishes I have seen in quite a while for quality and for condition. The dragons are commonly depicted as snake-like with four legs and they traditionally symbolise potent and auspicious powers, particularly control over water, rainfall, typhoons, and floods.

The dragon is also a symbol of power, strength, and good luck for people who are worthy of it in East Asian culture. During the days of Imperial China, which this dish belongs to, the Emperor of China usually used the dragon as a symbol of his imperial strength and power. Many pictures of Chinese dragons show a flaming pearl under their chin, in their claws or chasing one they are about to catch. The pearl is associated with spiritual energy, wisdom, prosperity, power, immortality, thunder, or the moon. This is a great find and worth every penny, its retail price would be considerably more, especially with the Chinese market clambering for such items.

This is one of the best examples you will find and is a good investment for the future. But more than that, it will bring real beauty to wherever it is displayed, as this is a piece of blue and white art. However, the images are important as they show the condition and you are purchasing this item based on the images provided.
