Lot Essay

A nearly identical identical example is in the collection of the Hong Kong Museum of Art, exhibited in The Wonders of the Potter’s Palette: Qing Ceramics from the Collection of the Hong Kong Museum of Art, 2 November 1984-6 January 1985, no. 25 (fig. 1). Another nearly identical example is in the Baur Collection, illustrated in J. Ayers, The Baur Collection, vol. IV, 1974, no. A555. The Baur dish has additional black enamels later applied to obliterate the fifth claw on each of the dragon’s feet.
