For your consideration: A Three-Dragon vase marked from the Jiajing 1522-1566 period of the Ming Dynasty. It features my favorite goofy-looking "dancing" Jiajing style dragons, flaming pearls, basketweave shoulder, and feathers at the neck and base. T are three handles.

T are some firing / kiln problems w the handles are attached and at the neck, which is why I could originally afford this piece, and can offer it at an affordable starting bid! If you're looking for an Imperial piece, this piece is not for you!

All of the vases that I own and offer for auction were selected from one prominent collector's estate in Shanghai.

If you would like more pictures, or have any questions, please feel free to email me.

Dimensions: 37 cm

This vase is being offered with No Reserve. It will be an excellent investment for the winning bidder.

Good luck!
