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

orange peel texture

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.
