A spectacular light blue cloisonne round box of the utmost highest quality possible. This is really one of the oldest boxes that I have seen in a very long time. It dates to the early to mid part of the 19th century and is unique in its color tones and flower arrangement, this against a background of intricate key fret design made popular in the early Qing dynasty. The copper patina is completely unretouched and exhibits a marvelous chocolate brown. In excellent condition, it measures 3.1" diameter x 1.25" high (7.9 cm diameter x 3.2 cm high)
