This large porcelain jar is beautifully glazed in the classic blue-and-white manner, with hand-painted cobalt-blue decoration against a crisp white field. The jar has a rounded form and flat lid, a traditional shape for jars used to hold Chinese tea leaves or herbal medicines. The painted decoration depicts a celestial dragon winding across the sides through abstract clouds. Considered the king of all mythical creatures, the dragon is a common symbol in Chinese art and a symbol of strength, ambition, luck and power. A greek key border encircles the neck of the jar and the lid is painted with a cloud and flaming pearl.
