Antique, Shard, Porcelain, Chinese, Box, Shard Box, Hand Painted, Brass inlay, Vintage
A shard box.
The construction of this box is based upon a large shard from an antique Chinese porcelain vase.
These boxes were made from the found shards of ancient Chinese ceramics sourced from whole ceramics such as vases and bowls which had been severely damaged due to earthquake or calamity. Many of these were apparently created and were popular during the 1980s and 1990s.
The curved shard which makes up the top of this box is very old. The box itself is of more recent vintage.
The box edges feature an inlaid decorative brass edge which shows a bit of wear (see images).
In good vintage condition with some wear (see images).
