Antique Porcelain Box
The cover of these boxes are fragments of porcelain salvaged from antique vases and jars from either the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) or far back as the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) in China. A plethora of ancient treasures including valuable vases, jars, and chargers were thoughtlessly destroyed by the Red Guards during the Cultural Revolution in the 1960's.
To bring these relics back to life, their remains have been crafted into functional and intricate boxes that people can display and use. Each box is made by hand to fit each individual porcelain shard.
