Comments: Brush pots were used for Chinese calligraphy to hold clean brushes upright and are one of the items from “the scholar’s table”, along with water droppers, ink stones, etc. The “Made in China” label on this piece suggests it was made for foreign buyers. It was probably purchased in Hong Kong.
