This tall blue and white "Jingdezhen" vase features three flying imperial dragons chasing the celestial pearl, which represents the heavenly bodies of sun and moon. Jingdezhen has been the capital of porcelain in China for more than two thousand years. The artists there reached artistic and firing technique maturity by the onset of the Jin Dynasty around 583 AD. Throughout history, products from Jingdezhen kilns were the official source of porcelain for the court. The intricate details capture the dynamic energy of these regal dragons, dancing within a powerful tempest. The dragon motif is further interpreted through the scale like design that adorn the vase's body. A true work of art that will be admired for generations.
