Late Qing Peachbloom Paste Box (QPB121703)
c. 1880 - 1900s, Late Qing Dynasty - Possibly Republic period
Porcelain with monochrome peachbloom glaze
Diameter: 9.5 cm
Height: 5.2 cm
From a New York City metropolitan area estate
A late Qing - Republic period porcelain paste box, covered throughout with a peachbloom glaze of a grayish raspberry hue, and marked on the reverse with an apocryphal six-character Kangxi mark. The box is well-potted with a tight, compact form, with the glaze stopping neatly at the edges and around the foot. The pronounced, extended foot is quite typical of peachbloom boxes made in the late Qing period, as true Kangxi examples almost always contain a sunken foot.
Condition: Basically perfect antique condition. Some surface wear and scratches to the glaze due to the age of the object, but no flaws beyond that.
