|This is a very unusual if not unique antique brush pot. It is made of beautiful translucent jade. It's base is a late 19th century one yen silver Japanese coin. As far as I can tell the coin dates to 1894. Both the jade and the coin are in excellent condition. I would expect that the brush pot is of Chinese origin but it could be Japanese. It measures 8.5 cm's long and is 5.5 cm's wide and dates to the late 1800 to very early 1900's.|
