Description: An extremely rare and large pair of reticulated revolving dragon vase bases with amazing openwork stands carved with Islamic script.
The bases are decoarated in famille rose with four openwork dragon panels all reserved on green and black floral grounds.
It is very rare to find this palette of green and black on Chinese porcelains. However, this technique is an extension of the famille noire decorative style, but only employs green enamels which when layered with black, produces a particularly lustrous effect which was not easy to achieve and which accounts for the rarity of pieces produced in this technique.
Age: Qing Dynasty.
Size: Approx 17 cm tall x 21 cm wide (Not including bases).
Condition: Good – Usual wear consummate with age, a few minor enamel losses.
