Lot Essay

This vessel and cover opens in an unusual way, so that the inverted, hollow cover can serve as a water pot and the vessel as a vase. A related, larger pair of lobed boxes and covers in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, is decorated with a blue ground in a similar technique, and is illustrated by H. Garner in Chinese and Japanese Cloisonne Enamels, London, 1976, no. 78.
