A Chinese calligrapher worked with many types of brushes to achieve the perfect stroke and often stored his brushes in a special container that had personal meaning. Each side of this 19th century rosewood brush pot from Northern China is inlaid with boxwood and bone depictions of young boys holding auspicious items: symbols of perpetuity. It is meticulously crafted with subtle feet, mitered edges and concealed joints.
