Catalogue Entry

The "Garlic" Mouth Vase with Dragon Design is a vase with a uniquely shaped lip depicting a red dragon. The term "garlic mouth" refers to the size and shape of the vase's mouth and how it visually resembles a bulb of garlic. The neck of the vase elongates from the round robust base. On the base, a ferocirous red dragon roars, wrapping it's tail upward around the extended slender neck. 


"Garlic" Mouth Vase with Dragon Design has a Cheng-Lung Mark. The vase is created in the style of the Qing Dynasty. In the Qing Dynasty, ceramics were being exported rapidly overseas. 


《仿清五彩雲龍墨底蒜頭瓶》是一個花瓶,其瓶緣獨特,描繪了一條紅龍。術語「大蒜嘴」是指花瓶口的大小和形狀,以及它在視覺上與大蒜球的相似度。花瓶的頸部從圓形堅固的底座拉長。底座上,一條兇猛的紅龍咆哮著,它的尾巴向上纏繞在延伸的細長瓶頸上。


《仿清五彩雲龍墨底蒜頭瓶》有正龍紋,而此瓶為清代風格。清朝時,陶瓷受海外買家歡迎,因此亦有大批瓷器出口海外。
