Chinese 19th Century Blue & White Porcelain Box with Inscription
This blue & white porcelain box was made during the late 19th century or possibly the early 20th century. It is heavily-potted and glazed, both inside and out, the outer surface covered in a geometric/floral pattern in underglaze blue. Inside the box and the cover are characters etched into the glaze; we have not had these translated although we believe they are words of memorial. The unglazed edges have fired to a reddish-brown. An almost identical example is shown the Southeast Asian Ceramic Society book "Chinese Blue & White Ceramics" by S.T. Yeo & Jean Martin, where they described it as an ink box. It is in good condition with no repair or restoration. Length 10.5 cm (4 inches).
