    Ok thanks I guess it may be in the form of a lotus flower and the little bits in the lid move up and down
    Thanks for your help

    Would this be a modern item ?

    Hi Tiki, it's so small it could be a calligrapher's water dropper. Go here and see what you think. The link is so long, I hope it works. Regards, Jim

    Thanks again
    Any tips on how to translate the seals

    Sorry, can't find these marks, maybe someone will recognize them. In the meantime, some guessing: the largeer mark in the lid could be a kiln and the smaller an artist signature; the large round seal might be a lauditory or auspicious mark.
    Good luck, Jim
