Dovey is a one of a kind Chinese Shard Box. It is unusual to have a three dimensional topped lid for a shard box so Dovey is a rare beauty!
Matchsticks and striker included.
The History of the Shard Box: During the Chinese Cultural Revolution (1966-1976), keeping antique porcelain at home was regarded as illegal. Many collectors broke their porcelain and threw it away. After the revolution, people began to collect the broken pieces of antique porcelain from the Ming or Qing Dynasty and bring it to life again. Around 1983-1985, the Shard Box was created. The Shard Box is not only a collection of antique porcelain, but also a collection of Chinese history.
