Ming Dynasty Cizhou-type Ware Black Glazed Coverd Box


A covered box originating from Shanxi Province during the Ming dynasty. This piece is characterized by a long body with a slightly bulging shape, and the exterior is adorned with a lustrous black glaze. Within the Cizhou-type kilns, the crafting of boxes in various sizes dates back to the Song dynasty, reflecting their embedded role in local customs. The glossy, jet-black appearance is reminiscent of the elegance of a Natsume tea caddy.

Despite a few chips, the box is generally in good condition and remains suitable for practical use as a container.
