A pair of 15th or 16th century Ming turquoise glazed ceramic dragons. This pair of Chinese architectural temple dragons made during the 15th or 16th Century in a turquoise glazed ceramic is a great testimony of the Ming Dynasty ceramic.

This pair of glazed ceramic Ming dragons from the 15th - 16th century would be an uncommon touch in any room, and would no doubt be a tremendous conversation starter.
