Fine Chinese Blue & White Porcelain Covered Box - Kangxi (1662 - 1722)
This attractive and fine quality blue & white porcelain covered box was made during the Kangxi reign (1662 - 1722) of the Qing Dynasty. Both cover and box are skillfully decorated in underglaze blue, the main pattern on the cover featuring chrysanthemums, the emblem of friendship. Surrounding both the cover and the box are the "eight treasures", all marks of good fortune.
It is large example of its type with a diameter of 10 cm (4 inches). This box has been excavated from a shipwreck and the glaze to the inner surface is more glossy than to the outer surface. There is no repair or restoration; a fine example.
