ANTIQUE PORCELAIN FAN SHAPED BOX 

FEATURES: Beautiful, old Chinese porcelain box is composed of two parts, each with its own art. The top lid has the mountain and river scene, a traditional image favored by the Chinese elites. The bottom half features a beautiful blue koi fish, symbolizing the wealth of the family. Cinnabar colored bamboo leaves are found on the sides. Such a box was often used to hold water while the scholar created calligraphy art. Exquisite fan shaped rosewood stand was apparently custom made for the box.
