A CHINESE PAKTONG BRUSH POT, CIRCA 1900.
A very elegant ribbed white brass brush pot, baitong. The walls of the pot are hollow but the piece is quite substantial and feels heavy for its size. Its elegance derives from the incurving walls, a difficult shape to manufacture. The base is signed with an impressed seal, Wen Chang Ge, perhaps the manufacturer.
Approximately 10cm high, 8.2cm base diameter. Weight: 459gm. Generally in good condition with no dents, just slight wear from use. Sadly, a former owner has scoured the inside and base in order to clean it, and polished the exterior.
Please study the photographs.
