Here is a marvelous hardstone Chinese Scholar Stone used as an ink pad for writing calligraphy, poetry etc. It measures 2 1/2 by 4 inches and is in excellent condition. It features dragons encircling the stone with an indented circle for the ink pad for the scholar to use as he writes his pearls of wisdom. It dates at least to the turn of the century - 1900's. A wonderful collector's piece. Thanks for your interest.
