Antique hand painted Chinese porcelain lidded box knob is broken and small chip on the edge of the lid marked with embossed floral mark on the base and inside underglaze blue mark 17 cm x 8 cm x 8 cm
Thank you for contacting Mearto. This is a Chinese porcelain box with a segmented interior. It may have been used for calligraphy ink and water. The floral mark on the base does not match other known pieces. The motifs are traditional Chinese themes that are repeated through time, so it is difficult to pinpoint the date of this piece. It is likely late Qing (19th century) The damage to the knob will affect the price. Since the damage must be taken into account, the Fair Market Value of this box is between $100 and $200.
