Thank You & Happy eBaying from all of us at RIICS Inc. 15thC Antique Hand Signed Chenghua Chinese Ming Dynasty Porcelain Dragon Vase.. We have posted extreme close-up photographs so you can see every detail and the surface of this ancient Chinese Porcelain Vase. The body of the vase measures 19.7cm tall by 11.7cm in diameter and including the wonderful handmade Dragon it measures 14cm at its widest point. On one side is the Flaming Pearl of Wisdom. First off, it was “discovered” in among a variety of porcelain, fresh to the market. This vase was filthy and we only partially cleaned the surface so you could see the unique, blue & white glaze as well as the details to the Dragon. After searching the internet I finally found the Chenghua marking that is on the bottom of his vase. I inspected this Chenghua signature with a very strong loop and you can see the variations in the thickness and irregularity of the two circles as well as the overlapping strokes used in the calligraphy, showing this signature is hand written. There are a couple of problems with this Ming Dynasty Porcelain Dragon Vase. One of the horns on the dragon’s head and one claw on the back foot is broken off. There are no other problems or any restorations to this 15. Century Ming Porcelain Vase.
