Chinese Dragon High/Low


For a while I have wanted a white Chinese dragon. The Jonathan Adler version above is kind of fun and mod, but not for $350.00. Not quite my style either. In general I find Jonathan Adler a bit too Miami Beach as opposed to Palm Beach for my own home.

I love the vintage Fitz & Floyd one below, but it's VERY hard to find, especially in mint condition, and always pricey. I think the detail is wonderful.

I just snagged him on Etsy for $50.00. :-)  :-)  :-)  :-)


I think he's going to enjoy living in my Chinoiserie home. I know just the spot for him.

Vintage will continue to be a very hot trend this year and especially vintage Chinoiserie. Stalk eBay, Etsy, thrift stores, and auctions - there are amazing finds out there.

You KNOW you just slayed me with this, RIGHT??!!! STEAL!!! Absolute STEAL!!! Now I will lose sleep, trying to find him AGAIN...like with the three F&F warrior statues I finally accumulated with your help! But I LOVE a happy ending!!!

Yours is much more interesting than the Adler one. Good shopping.
