Subject:Anhua porcelain bowl with hidden blue dragon image
Posted By: thomas tucholski Tue, Jan 28, 2020 IP: 2600:1700:6a70:5b90:

I found a similar post on this site and have hope. I have an eggshell porcelain bowl once owned, I believe, by George P. Swan, a wealthy San Diego industrialist, in the 1920's. The bowl is conical shaped approximately 5 3/4'' x 3 1/4 ". It appears plain white until light is placed behind it when appears a blue dragon chasing a blue phoenix under red clouds, separated by two (maybe)Chinese symbols. Perhaps anhua, but I'm not sure what that means. ; I am giving my best layman's description. I have pictures. I searched online and this site has the only example similar to my piece (beside the British museum) and the only people who seem knowledgable. Any information would be greatly appreciated as well as suggestions what to do with it. I am not a collector. Are there any reputable dealers or collector's in southern California?
