A fantastic large decorative charger featuring a Chinese green dragon chasing the flaming pearl and deep, scalloped borders shaped like lotus petals.
The dragon is a benevolent creature in the Chinese culture. He is the bringer of life-sustaining rain and is usually shown cavorting among clouds and playing with a pearl.
This dragon's play is seen as an attempt to swallow the pearl, in order to bring on a solar or lunar eclipse.
This gorgeous decorative charger will look stunning on on your wall or displayed on a console table or library shelf.
