John,

    Japanese-style mons [floral medallions], as illustrated on your latest B & W,
are actually often found decorating Imperial wares from ca.1715 to 1900.
The quality of your bottle is not as fine as #102 [ca.1760-1820]; #105 [ca.1851-1855];
or # 110 [ca.1820-1855], all in "Dragon".
I'd reckon your bottle is ca.1865-1900, and not necessarily Imperial [as indeed #110
is possibly not Imperial].
Re. the bottle with the doves and the Pekinese. A lot of bottles with a Pekinese subject
were made to honour the love of the Dowager Empress Cixi for this breed.
And
Best,
Joey
