Chinese Qing Scholar's Brass Ink Stone Box with Rabbits
Chinese late Qing dynasty to early Republic period circular form traveling scholar's brass ink stone box engraved on the top with three rabbits and a butterfly. The calligraphy for "rabbit" is incised at the upper left. The number "20" is on the base. The caked ink residue remains in the interior. Dates from the early 20th century. 2 1/2" diameter by 7/8 high. Good overall condition with a lot of patina consistent with its age and use. I have not cleaned or polished it. There is a slight indent on the bottom edge (see enlargements 2 and 3)and the incised rabbit design is worn from handling. This piece is from the private collection of American expatriates who lived in Hong Kong in the 1970s and 1980s.
