Set beside the four treasures of the scholars' desk, this naturally-formed stone brush washer would have been used by a Qing-dynasty scholar to rinse the ink from his calligraphy brush. Made of jasper, the vessel’s gnarled shape showcases the stone’s speckled appearance. Such novelties inspired scholars who surrounded themselves with objects derived from nature’s most curious forms. A wooden frame custom made to the vessel’s curves elevates this practical object to a work of art.

“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.”
