Monumental pair of Chinese carved wood brush pots adorned with mother of pearl and ivory details. Late 18th century. Brush pots were used by Chinese and Korean scholars between the 18th and 19th century. Calligraphy brushes were generally kept in the brush pots but intermittently, they were also used to stock paper rolls (rolled-up papers) hence they are sometime also called paper holders. This pair was made for a very important member of society as the carving quality and use of precious metals is unmatched.
