The National Palace Museum in Taipei showcases China's glorious history with tremendous displays of artwork and royal collections from every dynasty. There is not, however, even a single piece of sycee displayed by the museum. Luckily, while viewing a recent exhibition, we found this Ming royal porcelain box from the Lung Ching Reign which was created in the shape of a traditional Ming Boat.
