Subject:Ink pot?

I suspect this is a contemporary pot but wondered what it is and about the base mark? Any information would be appreciated.

This is a modern and fairly common pot (box) to hold the red paste used to make impressions of artist's name seals (and other seals).

The base carries a printed QianLong mark, but it is definitely not of the period.
