This is a rare Hirado covered porcelain box, its finial formed as a beautifully modeled cockerel and hen. Of unusual origami-form, the body is decorated with marvelously painted landscapes with craggy mountains, pine trees and hidden temples in underglaze blue. This rare box is an excellent example of Edo period Hirado ware, designed for home use, not for export. It is in very good condition with minor, barely discernible fritting on the finial, certainly not affecting the beauty of this piece. Height: 5" 19th Century, Japan
