This elegant brown porcelain water jarlet was used to hold water (a shui-er), to be gently poured out by the scholar in his studio. The lines are elegant, the glaze is rich and plentiful. A 19th Century piece. It may have been the inspiration for the wood piece which will be shown soon with this ceramic one for contrast. H is 5.5 cm, w is 6. HM LM
