DESCRIPTION:  A handsome scholar's calligraphy brush, crafted from a wood shaft that has been beautifully lacquered in a swirling, wave-like pattern of red and black lacquer.  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 (39.5 cm). <div id='rater_target1236955'></div>
