This is a beautifully done baimu (cypress) box for an inkstone. The name of the carver is on the box, the condition of the box is very good, with one exception: there is a piece of wood missing at the rim of the lower half of the box: this can be repaired if the buyer wishes. The box is carved as if to follow a natural line of, say, the inkstone for which it was made. There are 5 little "feet" on the bottom half, to allow the box to sit slightly off the schlar's table on which it must have originally rested. Size and more to follow.
