A famille rose enameled phoenix and dragon charger
Late Qing/Republic period
Thickly potted and raised on a wide foot ring, the shallow curving well centered with a phoenix roundel surrounded by dragons chasing flaming pearls amid clouds below a border of bats and clouds, all drawn in opaque famille rose enamels, the reverse with iron red bamboo clusters stenciled to the exterior walls, the celadon-tinged glaze covering all surfaces except the foot pad (wear to enamels).
