Throughout the Chinese dynasties, there have been corresponding expressions of the Dragon on ceramic artworks in each dynasty, however, the expression of three-dimensional sculpture has been the most difficult option, and artisans and even royal kilns have rarely used this technique for creation and expression. The Spring and Autumn and Warring States Period was a new era in the development of Dragon motifs, which were magnificent and colorful. Back then, all Dragon motifs were of beastly bodies, with claws of three toes, a thin and curly tail, a Dragon head with a wide-open mouth, and Dragon horns curled backwards.

During the Spring and Autumn and Warring States Period, Dragons began to be crafted by stacking, pinching and molding, and were used to decorate the necks and shoulders of vessels. During this period, the Dragon became more of a beast shape, with the addition of four legs similar to those of the tiger, and it no longer looked like a crawling snake or crocodile. Such processing made the Dragon majestic and robust in high spirit. This Ceramic Jar with Enameled Peony Flowers (Expectations of Bright Future of the Children) was crafted by three-dimensional carving technique, and is a precious piece to inherit and carry forward the classics. Eight Dragons in gold lacquer are sculpted in three dimensions on the body of the jar, with their heads in an imposing manner. The Dragons are in perfect harmony and life-like appearance with the blue enameled flowers. The claws of the Dragons are vigorous and powerful, and the delicate details of the tongues of the Dragons highlight the craftsmanship of a great nation, and the cap is covered with a plate depicting a golden Dragon that is upright, majestic, robust and generous. A stamp of “Designed and Fired During the Reign of Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty” is seen on the jar body. The enamel, which was first created in the reign of Emperor Kangxi, was dedicated to the imperial family or the royal family. With high cost and low production, even the favored ministers would not be readily awarded. Among all the ceramics of the Qing Dynasty, it was the most precious and top-notch.

To date, enamels are still highly valued by collectors and the auction prices may be as high as HK$100 million or 200 million. The "predecessor" of enamels can be said to be “enameling on copper”. As the name implies, “enameling on copper” refers to a process introduced from Europe to the Qing Dynasty, in which the roughcast is made of copper and then enamel is painted on the surface. Enameled ceramic was created under the influence of “enameling on copper” and was called “enameling on ceramic” for the purpose of distinguishing between the two.
