Rare Antique Chinese 18thC Green & Yellow Enamelled Alter Vase Dragon & Clouds Kangxi. Alter / Archaic form vase. Green 5-Toed Dragons amongst the Clouds on a yellow ground, chasing Flaming pearls picked out in aubergine enamels. The bottom half of the vase is decorated with Greek Key & Ruyi bands, again in green enamels.The base of the vase is decorated with Green crashing waves and sprouting Lingzhi picked out again in aubergine. The base is unglazed with a faint amount of iron oxide showing through, a trait typical of early 18thC wares. 2 hairlines running from the rim with 1 small chip to the footrim. Also some possible restoration around the mid section of the vase. Despite these faults it is a beautiful survivor and still displays beautifully. Displays well and would make a great addition to someones collection.
