This black lacquered brush pot, which was an essential fixture of a scholar's studio, is hand-painted with alternating depictions of garden scenes and flower motifs. These ornate gilt paintings have mellowed beautifully, revealing a depth of character that only time can achieve. This brush pot once held a collection of brushes for use in calligraphy and painting.
