We are thrilled to offer this extraordinary 8" diameter covered box decorated with a 5-clawed dragon chasing a flaming pearl. The 5-claw dragon was a symbol of the first Emperor during the Qing Dynasty and has continued over the subsequent centuries to be viewed as a majestic symbol.

Not only is it 8" in diameter but it is quite deep at 4". And, not only is it very, very large, but it is in excellent condition!! Rarely are even the small boxes found in such good condition.

The metal has a coppery/bronze color to it. There is a sturdy foot to the box as well.

The turquoise wave motifs are exaggerated and very bold which actually heightens or emphasizes the grand size of this item. Truly one of the best Chinese cloisonne pieces we have had to offer. We have not been able to find any examples in this size! Most are in the 3-4" diameter range and priced at $300-400.00. This is truly an extraordinary find. Enjoy the photos. And to reiterate - there is no damage. A few of the pictures show light reflections off the surface.

Price commensurate with the rarity of condition and size.
