Round outer face, only, of an antefix for a cover tile from the roof of a building. The tile has a raised flat margin all round inside of which is a low relief Ming dragon. The mold could be as early as 15th century, but the piece could have been cast later. The yellow glaze implies the tile was made for an Imperial building.
