Lot Essay

Such pair of green-glazed 'dragon' dishes are quite rare. Compare the current lot with an identical dish from the Palace Museum, Taipei and illustrated in Catalog of the Special Exhibition of K'ang-Hsi, Yung-Cheng and Ch'ien-Lung Porcelain Ware from the Ch'ing Dynasty in The National Palace Museum, Taipei 1986, pl.43.
See also another identical dish, although with a slightly darker green enamel, illustrated in Liu Liang-yu, Ch'ing Official and Popular wares - A Survey of Chinese Ceramics, vol 5, Taipei 1991, p.116.
