A Chinese duan inkstone housed in a fitted carved box, most probably for a scholar. The box is carved with birds on flowering branches. The box sits on four corner mounts. The stone is carved with a poem. I believe that the box is zitan. (Note: Some of the pictures have been lightened to show the detail.)

Size: The stone is 4" wide by 5-1/2" high. The box is 5" wide by 6-1/2" high

Age: Qing Dynasty

Condition: The stone has a very small chip under a rim corner.
