Important Ball Shape Dragons Vase

On an enamelled red base this imposing covered vase in cloisonne copper rests on 3 feet also in the shape of a ball. The decoration represents 2 dragons with 4 claws with fierce allures chasing each other. The polychromy of the partitioned enamels is quite exceptional in finesse and in excellent condition except for some slight wear on the cover. The grip of the cover, in the shape of a lotus button, also represents a stylized dragon chiseled in gold lacquer. The size of this vase is spectacular and rare. The ball shape is often associated with the sacred pearl (Tama) and the dragons chasing it.
