It is a handmade fine art reproduction of a vase at The Qianlong reign (1736-1796) of Qing Dynasty by Jingdezhen kiln

This moonflask of white porcelain is painted with underglaze blue and red designs. A five-clawed red dragon is depicted on either side facing forward with its body coiled to protect a flaming pearl at the center. Flames are issued from the scaly serpentine body of the dragon. The foaming painted in blue crest waves along the bottom scrolling clouds scattered across the sky. The flask is round in form, thus giving it the name full moon flask. Two thin handles are attached at the shoulders and rise to meet the straight narrow neck. The careful control of the cobalt (blue) and iron (red) pigments mark.

The original one was made at the imperial kilns in the city of Jingdezhen for the court in Beijing where it would have served as decoration for one of many palace rooms in the Forbidden City. The Qianlong emperor who reigned from 1736 to 1796 was the great patron of the arts, commissioning and supporting the production of vast numbers of exquisite works of art. The original piece is marked as having been made during this reign and it is undoubtedly among the finest porcelains to emerge from the Chinese kilns.
