This white porcelain jar features a design of dragon flying in the air among the clouds depicted in a stylized manner. The dragon, captured with powerful brush strokes in iron red, displays a rather humorous appearance with bulging eyes and a mouth gushing flame. Experts conjecture that the jar was made at the Sindaeri kiln during the second half of the 17th century and used at the royal court.
