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.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
