 Sold. Thank you very much! 
The octagonal box was well molded to resemble lacquered basketry, on the sides of the box representing finely woven panels, on the top of lid moulded with a crane flying among cloud which is a typical theme of Taoism. Southern Song Dynasty. 12 cm wide, 7cm high. This piece was likely recovered from an underwater shipwreck site in the southern Philippines and has contributed to the glaze texture and preservation. Good condition.
