I believe from the views available that your stacking boxes may date from the Chinese Republic Period (1912-49) into the nascent People's Republic era, circa the early 1950s. The apocryphal mark stamped on the base reads down and across from the top right as "Shendetang Zhi" (慎德堂製), "Made for the Hall for the Cultivation of Virtue", a devotional hall at the Summer Palace associated with the Daoguang Emperor (1821-50). See the link for a comparison of new and period porcelains with the Shendetang mark.

Best regards,

Bill H.
