Octagonal dragon lustre bowl with vibrant orange exterior and pale turquoise and ocher interior. 
The upper and lower rim of the bowl is decorated with a golden, pierced band pattern and a sold golden trim on the upper rim. Two outstretched four-legged, four-clawed golden dragons with scales and curled tail stretching across three fields of the octagonal bowl, each. The dragons have a fierce look with bulging eyes, two horns, a mane and spikes along their backs. There are two simple, golden, swirl patterns on opposite sides of the bowl, dividing the dragons.
The same golden, pierced band pattern, two dragons and swirl motifs are decorating the inside of the bowl. The bottom is highly decorated with golden geometric and floral patterns.
