This is a soapstone ensemble of scholar's objects. On the left is a very well-carved brushrest, excellent patina. In the center, what may called a brushpot but which one wag has called a wine cup. Very good patina. On the right: a contraption: it holds ink and water in the larger holes, small brushes in the center hole. Nice patina. The cup may be the oldest of the three. Condition of three is very good. The brushwasher: a few chips from us on the rim. Can sell each piece separately. Cup is 499; brushrest is 299 and the inks and brushes holder (contraption) is 399. Brushwasher: 249 The brushrest is 8 cm high and about 6 cm wide at the base. The brushwasher is a sturdy simple vessel and fits in with the other 3 very nicely.
