Large Chinese Scholar’s Burl Brush Pot, Qing
SCH340

DESCRIPTION: A handsome Chinese scholar's brush pot crafted from burl root and hollowed well to hold a number of brushes (pictured here with three quality brushes we also have listed).

Chinese Carved Scroll Weight with Two Lions
SCH229

DESCRIPTION: An unusual and dynamic Chinese scroll weight of two lions carved from a single slab of very dark wood (Zitan? Ebony?). The lions stand on a rectangular base with left paws touching a brocade ball, each facing opposite directions and each with fierce expression, one gazing upwards and the other looking straight ahead.

Pair of Ancient Chinese Bronze Seals
SCH210

DESCRIPTION: The art of Chinese seal making developed from very ancient times. First seen as molded clay stamps, bronze seals then appeared in an embryonic form in the Shang and Zhou dynasties (1600 BC – 256 BC). This pair of small bronze seals are an excellent representation of the early forms of Chinese seal making. The simple square seal pictured dates from the Han dynasty or earlier (206 BC – 220 AD), while the seal with a tortoise dates from the Tang or Song Dynasty (618-1279 AD).... Click for details

The lacquer shaft is connected to the natural bristle brush by a bulbous wood ferrule. One of the four treasures of the scholar’s studio, this striking scholar’s brush would have made an attractive companion to a fine brush pot. Very good condition; most likely dating from 1900 - 1930. DIMENSIONS: 15 1/2" long... Click for details
