Description

A beautiful pair of Chinese moon flasks. So named because of the flat, round body, which resembles a full moon and based on much earlier pilgrim flasks originally made of leather.
The bodies painted with a stylized chrysanthemum design in shades of pink, blue, yellow and white on a turquoise ground. A central reserve on either side decorated with a pair of facing dragons, one in gold gilt, the other in silver gilt, among chrysanthemum on a yellow ground. A pair of iridescent glazed qilong grace the shoulders, gazing up towards the neck. The tall, recessed foot and cylindrical neck both have yellow ground bands with scrolling floral designs.
