Small Chinese Ming Dynasty Blue & White Porcelain Box - Hare
This very small blue & white porcelain box dates to the 16th century. It is quite "heavily-potted" and both upper and lower sections have a ribbed wall. The underglaze blue pattern on the cover features a hare, an emblem of longevity. It may not be so easy to see the hare in the design; initially the design may appear as a human face.
Diameter 3.75 cm. Fine condition with no restoration or repair.
This item is part of a recently acquired old English collection comprising mostly Ming Dynasty blue & white porcelain but also including a few earlier celadons and some South-East Asian ceramics.
