    This is a really nice planter - good size too. it's either Chinese, Burmese, or Vietnamese, or even Anamese! i've never figured out where these were/are made, but i come across them pretty regularly and have quite a few. they are often very expensive too. i love the 3-dimensional quality of the dragon in this one. i wish someone could tell me more about who/where/when they were made.

      Your dragon has five claws - that normally means Chinese.

      This planter IS NICE! I really like the way the dragon is put on to it too. :^)
      I have some of this type of planter, but yours with the brown clay, and applied dragon make it special! Maybe older?

      thank you billretirecoll and Efes! this pot doesn't appear to have much age to it, so not sure...
