Chinese Burl Wood Calligraphy Brush, circa 1850

$2,180

About

Along with paper, ink, and inkstone, the brush was among the Four Treasures found in a traditional scholar’s studio. The brush served as a direct link to the artist’s creative spirit and provided an opportunity to display one's refined aesthetic. This 19th century calligraphy brush is an exquisite burl wood example from the esteemed collection of William Lipton. Prized for their irregular, organic forms, burl wood specimens such as this were given pride of place in the scholars' studio as sources of beauty and creative inspiration.
