Small Batavia ware lidded box

This small lidded box has an attractive brown glaze, which it typical for the so-called Batavia wares. The insets in the brown glaze are decorated with a red flower with green leaves, in the Famille Verte palette. The interior of the box is undecorated. Lidded boxes, like this one, likely were used to store tea. This box dates from the beginning of the reign of the Chinese emperor Qianlong (1736-1795), around 1740. The height of the box including the lid is almost 3 inches (about 7 cm).

Excellent, with a small 0.15-inch chip to the rim of the lid as well as a small original deformation to the top of the lid.

Qianlong, circa 1740.

Price $145
