This blue and white porcelain brushpot was probably made around 1900. A long Chinese text covers the entire surface done in traditional calligraphy. It is a long story. The inscription in the base tells us that the pot was made by the Gao Zhou Fu porcelain industry factory (it existed in 19th century). That factory was in Zhanjiang in the southwest part of Guangdong. It is a port, the base city of the PLA Navy today. This factory no longer exists. The pot is in excellent condition, no repairs, chips, nicks or firing defects. The red seal is a Chinese inspection momento. Height is 13.5 cm and diameter is 11.5 cm.
