A mid to late 19th Century Chinese Export Cachepot. It is hand-thrown and beautifully hand-painted in 4 colors. Two dragons, above a pagoda, reaching for a flaming pearl, surrounded by flames and 3-color clouds. The dragons represent the emperor or the yang. The flaming jewel (pearl) symbolizes feminine beauty, purity, the heart of Buddha. The Pagoda attracts the favor of Deities, Spirits and Immortals. There are no makers or dynasty marks which probably date this as an export piece made before 1890. It is in very good condition with crazing and an age fissure on the bottom side. It measures 6.25" h. by 7" diameter. The rosewood stand has been repaired and adapted to accommodate the diameter of the cachepot.
