The candleholder "Rainbow Dragon" shows two dragons, which are painted with the finest brushstrokes in a new palette and augmented by trailing flowers. Flowers and blue-green vines promise a long life in Chinese culture while dragons stand for success and prosperity. The "Red Court Dragon" with a flaming pearl, which encircles phoenixes as a symbol of imperial power and the unity of heaven and earth, is one of the earliest decorations of the manufactory. According to Chinese mythology, dragons are truly marvelous animals. They have magical powers and an extremely long lifespan - in Meissen porcelain art too. The so-called "Ming Dragon" is still a popular motif on Meissen porcelain. The candleholder "Rainbow Dragon", however, is not only a wonderful Christmas present for friends of the Asian culture.
