Shard boxes have been a provincial Chinese art for centuries. It's a great way to preserve historical porcelain and make it useful as well. The shards are usually recovered from vases broken at a factory or just broken in general. Shard boxes are used for everything from lunch boxes to pure decoration. This antique box features a very old porcelain insert; the lacquer box itself is antique as well. The porcelain is even older than the lacquer; I estimate early 19th century. The lacquer box is certainly at least as old as the late Qing dynasty, circa 1880-1920. The porcelain features two cavorting boys in traditional, period garb and hairstyles. The box is in excellent shape with a few well done and insignificant touch ups. Some wear in spots on the very old porcelain section. A great example being offered at a reasonable price! Measures 5 and 3/4 inches long,
2 and 1/2 inches tall and 4 inches wide.
