A Qing Dynasty scholar would have used this finely crafted amethyst brush washer to rinse the ink from his calligraphy brush. It is carved into the shape of a peach, from a single block of this semi-precious stone a symbol of immortality. Legends say that peach trees grew in the orchard of the ancient Chinese goddess the Queen Mother of the West.
