Hi James,
As far as I understand in the Qing dynasty it is Daoguang and Guangxu. But, possibly not in-between the two.

Hi Peter,

It is interesting about this orange peel texture. In your experience what period(s) does this indicate? Thank you very much.

This is most likely a seal ink box.

The color is lighter and the strokes less dense than those of similar items I have seen. (I have seen such a decoration on vases only.)
There is a Jiaqing mark, but the orange peel bottom would have been more likely in a later period.
The foot rim looks okay as far as I can see.

I would need to do a hands-on inspection to make sure.
