A large Chinese seasoned hui mo ink cake made from Huangshan Mountain pine trees. Often large elaborate ink cakes were given as commemorative gifts and were displayed prominently. The Anhui Province factory has over 7,800 antique mold plates which are considered a national treasure. Made from one of these molds, we date this seasoned ink cake circa 1980. In excellent unused condition, it measures 6" x 5".
