Set alongside the four treasures of the study - the calligraphy brush, ink, paper, and inkstone - a brush pot or scroll holder was a fixture on every traditional scholars' desk. Once used to hold calligraphy brushes, this early 20th century brush pot is shaped from a single block of fine-grained cypress (baimu). Polished with smooth sides and a rounded lip, the petite brush pot is undecorated to highlight the wood's beautiful grain and warm coloring.
