Details
A Blue and White Porcelain Dragon Jar
Joseon dynasty (19th century)
Of ovoid form with wide shoulders, tapered lower body and tall, cylindrical neck, painted in controlled outlines and washes of dark and medium cobalt underglaze with two animated dragons striding through clouds in pursuit of a flaming pearl, the clouds unusually conceived as billowing clusters integrated with the dragons to suggest they surround the dragons in the sky, shorter decorative clouds drawn as curling ribbons and the neck and lower body ornamented with auspicious fungus-head-shaped cloud collars; restored breaks as described in the condition report.
18 1/8 in. (46 cm.) high
