This is an exceptional example of Chinese enamel.
The artwork is of a water dragon pursuing a fire ball in clouds. He rises from the ocean and goes after the ball aggressively with his paws ready for action. The dragon is gilded and very realistic. Absolutely exquisite enamel works cover the entire background, with red enamel on the ball, green on the sky, blue for ocean and clouds. The frame displays a continuous pattern of eternity, symbol for long life and good health, all in the most royal cobalt blue.
