EARLY QING DYNASTY CHINESE YELLOW DRAGON INCISED PORCELAIN BOWL

Chenghua mark, Probably Kangxi, late 17th / early 18th Century

 

 

 

 

 

 

Of deep round form with everted rim on a straight steep foot, incised with 2 opposing 5-toed

 dragons chasing the flaming pearl, above incised stylized lotus petals, the verso with an

underglaze Chenghua (Ming Dynasty, 1465-1487) mark within concentric circles

 

Note: Yellow is the ancient Chinese palace favorite color. The 5-toed dragon also represents State, or

Imperial use.  The emperor wore robes of the dragon, and used yellow porcelain and cutlery. Yellow was

chosen because it represents the noble, decency and meticulous in the Chinese culture.

hairlines or repairs
