Very unusual 19th century Chinese scholar’s rock in a shape of a natural rootwood mountain with numerous caverns and richly textured surface resembling swirling clouds or solidified lava. Very beautiful transparent lacquering on the outside showing rich natural play of shades of brown, black lacquer on the inside, wonderful patina, very pleasant to the touch. Excellent piece in scholar’s taste - one of the most attractive scholar’s objects that I ever had. Length 6 1/4 inches, height 2 7/8 inches.
