This Antique Vintage Chinese Cantonese porcelain box in the design of a duck. Interesting relief work and detail, Red and blue enamels are painted over the white very much in old Imari style of a flowers and a lotus vine. The mark reads: which means Yangcheng Wuchen Nianzhi, which means'Made in Canton in Guangdong in a wuchen year'; which could be 1928, 1868 or 1988'. A wuchen lunar year occurs every 60 lunar years.The general and experienced consensus from those who collect Chinese wares, is that this was made in the 1928 wu chen year- vintage, so 13 years away from being an antique. It is in excellent condition with no cracks or chips, some minor wear to the surface is likely although I only see a few age spots and the colors are still very bright. 6 inches long and 4 inches high. An attractive useful trinket box or display item.
A few very small scuff marks due to age. The item "Antique Vintage Chinese Canton Imari Porcelain Hand Painted Lidded Duck Bird Box" is in sale since Tuesday, June 12, 2018. This item is in the category "Antiques\Asian/Oriental Antiques\Japanese\Other Japanese".
