The small bowl is potted with deep sides rising to a flared rim, the exterior incised and enameled in bright green with two striding dragons chasing a ‘flaming pearl’ between a foliate scroll around the mouth and a ruyi border encircling the foot, the interior central medallion with a green-enameled shou character, which means longevity, all against a rich egg-yolk yellow ground, the base with a six-character Qianlong seal mark in underglaze blue.
