Treasure Box of Eternal Spring and Longevity

<p>From the uppermost surface downward, strata of cinnabar, green, and buff lacquer cover the surface of the round box with low sides. The shoulders slope gently and the &#8220;mouth&#8221; of the box is slightly constricted. This shape is sometimes called &#8220;steamed cake box&#8221; (zhengbing he) in reference to a food item that this shape resembles. &#8230;</p>
