This 19th century calligraphy brush with a hand carved handle that resembles stacked beads or barrels and ball shaped collar was used by a Chinese scholar during the Qing Dynasty. The brush would have been held upright pressing down on the bristles to create heavier, bold strokes and lifting it up to make willowy, lighter strokes. Although calligraphy is an expressive art form, it also requires precision & technique.
