Japanese Arita porcelain BRUSH WASHER in a squat bee-hive form for the scholar's desk. The blue underglaze design depicts the ocean's edge with small houses and trees. It has a slightly raised circular foot and an everted rim. It has a 1 3/8" diameter at the rim, 3 3/8" = widest diameter, 2 3/4" at the foot and is 1 3/8" in height. Excellent condition, no chips, cracks or hairlines, but there is a kiln flaw (star crack) in the center of the base. The brush washer is "water-tight." Circa: late Meiji, 1890-1910.
