This dish is finely incised with a pair of writhing five-clawed dragons in pursuit of a flaming pearl amidst scrolling flames. The exterior of the gently rounded sides is similarly decorated with two striding dragons, all covered under a translucent glaze of lemon-yellow color. It is a fine example of Kangxi imperial porcelain.
