A wucai enameled dragon and phoenix bowl
Guangxu mark and period
Its wide curving well centered with a dragon chasing a flaming pearl within an underglaze blue double ring while the exterior walls display a band of trifid leaves and rope separating each of the bajixiang drawn above opposing pairs of dragons and phoenix birds amid flowering branches, the six-character mark in underglaze blue regular script appearing beneath the celadon-tinged glaze on the recessed base.
