Lot 63. A massive blue and white 'dragon' fishbowl, 18th century; 61cm (24in) diam. Sold for £ 206,500 (€ 231,780). © Bonhams

Heavily potted with a rounded lipped rim, the exterior boldly painted with two pairs of fiercely writhing five-clawed dragons, each pair in pursuit of a flaming pearl amid fire and cloud scrolls, and all above rocks emerging from crashing waves above the foot. 

Provenance: a European private collection.
