18th or 19th century Chinese yellow glazed and carved porcelain brush washer. Signed by ¡°Wang Bing Rong¡± who is considered one of the best porcelain carvers of that period. His dates are some what confusing. Some record say he was born in 1736 and died in 1795. Other records have him living from 1862 to 1908. Perhaps the most appropriate approach was taken by Christie¡¯s. In their auction catalog of Fine Chinese Ceramics, New York, 1995, they state, Mr. Wang¡¯s dates are not known but he probably worked sometime during the Dao Guang period (1821~1850) into the second half of the 19th century. This carved two dragon yellow brush washer with turquoise inside is 4 ½ inches in diameter and 1 ½ inches tall. It is in very good condition.
