This is a zitan inkpaste box. These are in principle not rare: but ones in such fine condition are virtually impossible to buy in Beijing now. Only ones all broken and chipped the condition of this is very good just a few chips on the inter rim. . It is carved to look like a section of a tree trunk The nodes of the tree, the little branches on the bottom are very realistically carved.
