Rare Ca 1600 Chinese Porcelain Ming Period Kosometsuke Incense Box Fruit
Condition Report: lower part with 2 chips, lid was in half with 1 sideline. Size 55mm in length
Size does matter is what they say. That also means small size matters! This lidded box is 5.5cm in length and is so sweet in our opinion. In the shape of what seems to be a fruit and with a nice butterfly scene.
It’s 17th century chinese porcelain, transitional period, made for the Japanese market. This unusual Kosumetsuke Kogo would have held incense that is added to the charcoal fire during the charcoal laying procedure.
