    This nice unusual Chinese enamel box appealed me...

    I intended to repair the enamel, of course ;-)

    I love the yin/yang pink enamel inside!

    7.5cm by 5.5cm.

    Kyratisation pics on next post!

      I like these little enameled pieces, but keep them as they are, I always feel that if I try to repair them, that I'd end up ruining them! Nice find though! :^)

      Ooh, Bill, please show us your enamels!
      This is my first Canton enamel, I love them.
      Thank you!

      Jenni, many thanks for loving the wounded box :-))

      That would be a chore to find them, but maybe some day! You'll have to give me some time! 3 full sheds, a garage, and house...20? no 32 more years, I'll find them somewhere! &:^D

      Pascale! I really like the way you photographed this, how do you get that effect? :^)
    5. kyratango kyratango, 4 years ago
      I must say these pics are from the listing... so, credit and compliment goes to the seller!

      Ha! You are full of treasures then... May I come and help you in the hunting?
      ;-P

      It would be a fun pick Pascale, every time I go through it I find treasures lost! :^)

      It reminds me of Chintzware, in the chinese manner of coarse !

      Just gorgeous. I love the interior as well!

      Phil, you're right! It does look as an embroidered fabric :-D

      Betweenhelens, thank you so much for your kind comment! I love too the yin/yang interior and this sweet pink color!
