Dish with single dragon
- Not on display
- Further information
The decoration of five clawed dragons and the hall mark suggest that these were part of a service made for a pavilion or palace in one of the imperial precincts. Hall marks are often seen on 19th century porcelain.
The undulating surface of the glaze on the recessed base is very characteristic of the first half of the 19th century.
