This type of flask is said to be moon-shaped.

The imperial five-clawed dragon motif occupies the central space, and peony scrolls adorn the sides.

An inscription on the bottom states that it was made during the Qianlong period of the Qing dynasty, which corresponds to 1736-95. It therefore was produced at the imperial kilns at Jingdezhen in Jiangxi Province of southeastern China.
