    I found this old Asian trinket box at the store today. It is made with a porcelain top and silver color metal. It's a pretty little box with a lot of detail

      These were very popular in the 80's-90's. China makers used broken bits of porcelain and made tourist-trade trinket boxes. I imagine they found heaps of broken bits in factories that some smart 20 yr-old kid said "we should make something out of this"...or like that...but in Chinese. :-)

      Valentino, I was just reading up on these-they are called Chinese shard boxes. Thanks for the info :)
