Chinese Doucai Porcelain Charger

extended rim decorated with wave and floral, body painted with red dragon chasing a flaming pearl, surrounded by continuous clouds, bat and foliate border, the reverse painted with scrolling floral decoration, apocryphal six character Yongzheng mark on base, 15-5/8 in.

Note: "Doucai was a porcelain enameling technique perfected during the reign of the Chinese Emperor Xuande during the Ming Dynasty.  Doucai is a variety of decorative porcelain formed by the combination of underglaze blue-and-white and overglaze decoration. Before firing, the design's outline should be painted on the base with blue-and-white, then the painted base should be fired into blue and white porcelain, on which the blank of the previously-sketched pattern should be filled with paint in various colors. And then it should be fired again in a low-temperature kiln at about 800 degrees Celsius."
