About

This is a very decorative, circular porcelain Lidded Box, hand painted and made in Japan during the Meiji Period, circa 1880.

The base has over-glaze floral sprigs and butterflies while the lid has a distinctive decoration of alternating radial patterns within panels of flowers and geometric diamond shapes all in bold coloured enamels of red, burnt orange, green, yellow and grey. There is also additional hand gilded highlighting detail to the main pattern and the blue borders as per the images. Both the base and the lid have a matching painters mark near the inner rim which indicates that the base and lid are part of the same piece.
