Chinese Song / Yuan Dynasty Dehua Porcelain Box – Swastika Pattern

This porcelain box was made during the 13th or 14th century (Song dynasty AD 960 -1279, Yuan dynasty AD 1279 – 1368) at one of the Dehua kilns in Fujian province. Both upper and lower parts have moulded decoration, the cover featuring a swastika in its centre surrounded by a ribbed wall, the lower section with a scrolling pattern. Both inner and outer surfaces are coated in a finely-crackled pale yellowish-green Qingbai glaze. The concave base remains unglazed revealing the white body.

Quite a large example of its type with a diameter of 12.5 cm. It is in good condition with minor surface wear but no repair or restoration.
