Very unusual late Qing Dynasty (1890s to 1911) Chinese scholar’s ivory and ebony brushrest. Ivory is beautifully carved as a prunus trunk with flowers and buds, fixed in superbly fitted and excellently carved ebony stand. Elegant design and color combination, wonderful patina. Excellent functional object for scholar’s desk, one of the most beautiful scholar’s objects that I have had. Height 5/8 inches, total length 6 5/8 inches.
