    A Chinese box and cover, decorated in underglaze blue of a deep and rich tone, and dating from the Kangxi period. Both the cover and the base are decorated with stylised lotus plants and flowers. Diameter 9.6cm (3.8”)

     
    The depth of colour of the decoration is reminiscent of items made in the late Ming period, but this box was retrieved as part of an (unnamed) shipwreck cargo together with many items similar in style to the Vung Tau cargo (dated to c 1690). There is an ovoid jar and cover with similar decoration, dated to the Kangxi period, in the Gugong Museum, Beijing, illustrated in plate 230 in the book Qing Shunzhi Kangxi Chao Qinghuaci (Qing Dynasty Blue and White Porcelain from the Shunzhi and Kangxi Reigns)
     
    Dating: Kangxi (1662 - 1722)
     
    Condition:
     
    This box and cover are in very good condition with no chips, cracks or restoration. Despite submersion the glaze is also in good condition with just a little softening from exposure to sea water, and a few remnants of marine encrustations which have been removed.

    Drove House Antiques

    Specialising in antique Chinese porcelain, ceramics and works of art. We have been collectors of antique Chinese ceramics for many years, and made the decision in 1999 to enhance our enjoyment and appreciation of these marvellous objects by selling a selection of items. Over the last 14 years we have slowly increased the size of this activity, selling to customers worldwide, many of whom have become valued regular purchasers from us. Our aim is to offer good quality and interesting examples of antique Chinese ceramics so that, whether you are a new collector or an old hand, you will find something to tempt you! We understand how difficult it is to buy items at a distance without handling them. We want you to feel confident about buying from us, which is why we aim to give a 'no surprises' description, giving as much detail about condition as possible. If you have any questions about an item, please do not hesitate to ask us. We unconditionally guarantee the item to be as described. If when you receive the item from us it is not as we have described you may return it for a full refund of the purchase price. (Returned items must be received in the same condition as sent out by us, and return shipping must be paid for by the buyer.) Shipping is additional to the indicated price.
