Guest Book
19th century Chinese porcelain small covered round box for seal paste painted in underglaze blue with 2 boys on a terrace on the cover, and swirling clouds on the outside of the base. Excellent quality painting - see the ease and freedom of the brush strokes. Beautiful bubbly glaze. Spurious 6-character Kangxi Emperor reign mark in underglaze blue on the bottom. Tiny chip to the rim of the lower part (seen at 6 o’clock on the right image of Enlargement 3), overall in very good condition. Very quiet subtle piece for scholar’s table. Diameter 1 1/2 inches, height 2/4 inches.
