Product Description

A handsome looking, large antique Chinese porcelain charger dish, decorated with profuse decoration and with a pair of duelling dragons in the middle.

The porcelain is painted in a deep blue on a slightly blueish white background, with a vitreous glaze, dating it to around the first half of the 18th century. The dragons are depicted with 4 claws on each leg. The four-clawed dragon would be used typically for imperial nobility and certain high-ranking officials. The three-clawed dragon was used by lower ranks and the general public. The five claw dragon was reserved for the emperor, in this case, Yongzheng. The charger does not have any painted reign or potter marks on the underside. Condition is good, but for a chip that has been reglued on the edge of the dish.

Size: 37.5 x 4 cm (14 ¾ x 1 ½ inches)
Weight: 1680 g
