Antique Chinese bronze dragon jardineer. The jardineer measures 8" tall with a diameter of 10". The piece has been drilled out on the base possibly for a lamp or plant tray. The jardineer is beautifully hard fired enameled with a bronze relief dragon guarding the vessel. The enamel is about 80% with some loss. There is a minor repair on the base rim, refer to photos. The piece dates circa 1860, legal antique.
