An attractive covered container in rare, square form; only the square lid is arched. On all exterior surfaces, Shanshui design exhibits landscape with mountains, lake, boats, islands and buildings. However, not entirely circumferential, each side has its own depiction. On the lid are mountains, lake and canoe within a border of clouds.
From an old Swedish collection
This type of blue-white painting with landscape design became particularly renowned through the shipwreck find of the Diana cargo, which sank 1817 near Malaka and was salvaged 1994.
