This is a substantial Boxwood (huangyangmu) brushpot. It dates from the 19th Century, either 1890 or 1830. It is plain and elegant with semblances of a pine tree and a full cicada. Condition is very good with one crack due to dryness. The full inscription of the theme and the name of the calligrapher are on the base. Mr. Chen of that era signed the pot and probably did the work. Chen Ruizheng wrote the calligraphy in the base.
