      Believe or not, it's a modern fake one. There was no such things in the history and the maker invented this himself.

      Thanks for your suggestion, Shrine. I finally found something similar. A scholars box for seal paste. Here is a pic. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Chinese-Scholar-Blue-White-Porcelain-domed-lidded-Box-/182249588301?hash=item2a6eec064d:g:HHMAAOSw0HVWEuLA

      Oh my goodness, you finally found it. However, it's fake as well and could be the brother of yours. It's OK to be fooled by fake porcelain, I believe every collector, including myself, had done this at certain point.

      Thanks for your comments Shrine. I'm okay that it's fake. I just liked it. I am surprised though that someone would take the time to make something that had no actual use. It seems it would have been simpler to have just made it as a ceramic
      box. Thanks again.
