This is a kind of tea caddy: a box for storing tea. The calligraphy on the cover is very well done. The front of the box is inscribed "Rock Tea of Wu Yi", a famous tea-producing area in Fujian province. The referencce to Longquan; we do not know if it is a place or not in Fujian. This is a mid-Qing piece.
