Covered box. Mold-formed.
Clay: coarse porcelain.
Glaze: lead-silcate glaze, tinted green with copper, applied on the biscuit. Knob unglazed.
Specific kilns in the Zhangzhou complex in southern Fujian province produced boxes of this sort, molded of porcelain clay and glazed on the biscuit with lead-silicate enamel glazes in shades of green, yellow, and purple. Caches of such brightly-glazed containers have been unearthed on the island of Sulawesi, although they are rarely found elsewhere in Indonesia.
