Chinese Burled Brush Pot, circa 1900

$480Asking Price

About

Hand carved from a pine tree burl, this late 19th century burl wood brush pot once held select calligraphy brushes in a scholars' studio. Placed alongside the Four Treasures of the scholar - paper, brush, ink, and inkstone - this brush pot would have stirred the imagination and satisfied the scholars' taste for natural forms. We love the gnarled and twisted form of this burled brush pot as a decorative bowl or an unexpected planter for a single orchid. Additional dimensions: Opening: 4.75" W x 4" D.
