Set alongside the four treasures of the study - the calligraphy brush, ink, paper, and inkstone - a brush pot was an essential fixture of the scholars' desk. Like everything in the scholars' studio, the brush pot was an opportunity to showcase the scholars' creativity and good taste.

Used to hold a collection of calligraphy brushes, this small brush pot is carved to resemble two birds resting on a gnarled tree stump. Showcasing the fine grain and light coloring of cypress (baimu), the wooden brush pot looks lovely in today's interiors as a tabletop sculpture or a planter for a single orchid.

“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.”
