About the original work: Large covered vase, also known as a Dragon vase, China Kangxi 1662-1722. This vase is part of Augustus the Strong's collection and bears a Johanneum inventory mark. It was part of 151 pieces of Chinese export porcelain sent to Dresden in 1717 by the King of Prussia from his own collection in exchange for a "human gift" of 600 elite soldiers, or dragoons, the name by which these vases are now known. They were listed on the inventory of the Japanese Palace where the gift was displayed in the 18th century.
