Calligraphy Brush Washer In Form of Chinese Sage, Cup, Wine Jug Circa 1930s

This was made to be quite utilitarian, since one needs to have the jug for washing calligraphy brushes. You might want to use it as a pen holder for your desk. As you are probably aware, I like the unusual touches.

He is glazed in the Sancai tradition in Cerulean Blue, Mustard Yellow. and Jade Green with brown accents. The colors are vivid.

This stands 4 and3/4 inches tall and is close to 4 inches across.

Circa 1930s.

Condition - Very Good. The overall condition is better than you would expect from an object of substantial age that has been displayed/handled/used, usually over the lifetimes of several owners. He has the usual roughness on bottom.

This is part of the fabulous collection of 144 vintage and antique mudmen I have just purchased, that had been lovingly collected over many decades. I purchased all 144 pieces, all in Very Good to Excellent Condition. I will be listing all of them, and of course will consider a reduced price if one were to purchase all or a large number of them. I am listing them at very affordable prices individually as well.
