Guest Book

Unusual dated brushwasher and ink box, combination with lid. The lid is dated Year 15 of the Founding of the Republic of China (1927), with the name of the owner: Wang Shou, and Guangxi Secondary School, Class 13 also written. The two large characters on the right translate as “Hidden Dragon”. This has a chip and a crack (see last enlargements). A very unusual piece as I don’t encounter dated Republic pieces often and porcelain coming out of Guangxi Province are rare. This is still quite serviceable and has nice sort of folksy charm to it. 8.5cm/3.3in x 7.5cm/3in x 5.6cm/2.2in.
