A beautiful combination of Chinese red, gold, black and underglaze blue porcelain make this an exceptional little antique box! These boxes are made of an attractive porcelain remnant, usually antique, papier mache, paints, and lacquer. The shape of the porcelain shard determines the ultimate dimensions and character of the box. Such boxes have been around for centuries, as the Chinese love the designs of good porcelain and thus make use of exceptional pieces from broken examples. The box measures 4 1/4" long by 3" wide by 2 1/4" tall. Condition: excellent antique condition, expected surface wear, some insignificant hairlines to lacquer due to age. Looks better than the photographs! A lovely example.
