CHINESE EARLY 20TH C. CARVED JADE BRUSH REST
This early 20th century carved jade brush rest is 8 ¾” long, 3” high and 1 ¼” thick. It depicts three playful PiXiu facing each other. PiXiu are Chinese mythical creatures who are considered to be very powerful protectors in the practice of Feng Shui. Not only can they protect an individual or a family, they will also draw wealth from all directions. The PiXiu resembles a winged lion and is the ninth offspring of the dragon. It has a pair of bulging eyes, a long, bushy tail and one curly horn (some have two horns). Aside from an old almost invisible repair on the smaller PiXiu’s front legs, it is in good condition.
