Large Pair of Chinese Vases porcelain hand painted dragons, Qing circa 1900

About

These are a very beautiful, decorative and unusual pair of hand painted Chinese porcelain Vases, having a hexagonal form with a high shoulder and short lipped neck, that we date to the late Qing period, circa 1900. They have a celadon, grey / green crackle glaze. The main design is of two vertical Li Dragons (dragons of the sea) chasing a flaming pearl of wisdom, set within white waves as depicted by raised slip-work painted over the glaze. The dragons are repeated on the other side, giving four dragons in all. There are also simulated handles painted either side of the dragons with further motifs below. Additionally there is a continuous border pattern around the neck and another deeper border around the base rim. The enamels used are bold, using mainly brick red, beige, yellow, green, white and some blue, with additional hand gilding which highlights parts of the design. An unusual and very decorative PAIR of Chinese Vases
