Chinese Export Porcelain Brush Pot Blue and White Hand Painted Dragons



This is a high quality Chinese export porcelain brush pot, finely hand painted in blue and white depicting two imperial 5 toed dragons among clouds. These brush pots are often used as jardinières. The pot has a well hand potted shape which is square in section, with a lipped top and sits on four small "L" shaped corner feet. The piece has a white glaze with a light blue tinge. The brush pot is beautifully and carefully hand decorated over-glaze in varying shades of a lovely striking sapphire blue, depicting two five clawed, imperial dragons set among clouds. The base is unmarked and we date this fine piece to the first half of the 20th century, circa 1930.
