Circa 1890 - 1920s
Late Guangxu - Republic Period
Porcelain with underglaze cobalt blue
D: 9 cm
Basically perfect. Slight red discoloration to inner rim due to paste storage.
From a Baltimore, Maryland collection

Though marked with a six character Kangxi mark, this paste box is decorated in a reserved, minimalistic style that is solidly late Qing/ Republic. Its shape is flattened and elegantly contoured. The main decoration likely derived from popular Daoist iconography.
