The China Plate is a 1931 Silly Symphonies animated film.
The short is based on the Willow pattern legend, with some major differences, including a dragon. There is an oriental scene, the Willow pattern on a china plate, that comes to life, telling the story of two young lovers who are disturbed. First, by an overweight Emperor who is the girl's father and chases after them because the boy disturbed his rest. Then a fire-breathing dragon that eats the emperor.
