I bought this piece in Shanghai during one of my trips. It's so lovely and vivid with aged patina. There is another pair with Phoenix style but I was out off money so I had to pass that. I will surely buy the Phoenix one too when I visit Shanghai next time.
This is really amazing as I found another exactly same piece of Dragon weight in Taipei in Jan 2004. I was so happy and asked for the price right away. The dealer gave me a very nice price (even better than the price I paid in Shanghai), so I had no second thought and made them a pair. Two dragons from two totally different locations now reunited. Is this amazing?
So, I now have a pair of Dragon and am waiting for a pair of Phoenix.
