Default dragon & phoenix brass circle Chinese Game ?

Hello,
I bought this brass chased item
with a dragon and a phoenix,
Maybe ( old ? )chinese origin,

The seller think it it a plate for an old chinese game
but I didn't find anything.
diameter is 24cm / 9,5 inches

Any idea ?
Thank you !!!

I don't know why and it's just a gut feeling but I think it is something related to cooking/eating. Again I have nothing to base this on but a gut feeling. (pun somewhat intended)
