Description

This is a wonderful “Kosometsuke” (blue and white) incense box. That was ordered by a tea master in Japan and was burned in the jingdezhen kiln at the end of the Ming dynasty in China. This work has the shape of a folding screen with pictures painted on four sides. It is called a folding screen box because of it uses the folding screen as a motif. This made its way to Japan during the Edo period and has no damages at all. The container was most likely made a few decades ago, but it is also of high quality with an honorable origin.
