Lidded Chinese box with flowers

This large lidded box is decorated with an overall flower pattern. The rim of the bottom is unglazed, whereas the rims of the lid have an attractive brown glaze. The interior of the box is undecorated. Lidded boxes, like this one, likely were used to store tea. Chinese export porcelain boxes of this size are comparatively uncommon. This box dates from the reign of the Chinese emperor Qianlong (1736-1795). The height of the box including the lid is just over 5 inches (13 cm).

Good, with an almost invisible 1-inch hairline fracture in the lid.

Qianlong, 18th century.

Price $245 (Reserved)
