The box and cover moulded, shaped and decorated in lotus form.
The under-glaze blue lotus design to the lid with radiating petals and a central cross motif.
Larger petals painted to the sides as panels containing alternating floral sprays and wave patterns.

These are most likely products of kilns in the Red River delta region of northern Vietnam (old 'Tonkin').
Many have recently been recovered from archaeological contexts datable to this period - 16th/17th centuries.
These have worn most likely as a result of contact with salt-water and the box has probably been recovered from a shipwreck somewhere in the South Seas.

A very pretty and unusually interesting, genuine old antique.

Glaze degradation (see images)
