This is a medium size bamboo brush pot with a mountain scenery. It is very well carved with many fine details. It even has the name of the mountain with scrolling heavenly clouds at the top and then with the pine and bamboo tress set behind a mountainous background. There are cranes flying and resting on the pine tree. Below the pine tree are several deers roaming and some are resting. Even all the small details are finely curved. For example in picture no. 3 the body of the deer are curved with a star like spot. There is even a small deer chewing on a lingzhi. The next picture shows two small lingzhi sprouting out of the mountainous rock. The crane, pine tree and the bamboo tress are all finely carved in great details. This three dimensional and layered effect of the brush pot looks like it is the work of a master craftman. Perfect in detail and finess. A very beautiful and fine piece of work of art. The bamboo brush looks much better visually because of the three dimension and layered effect than the photographs here. An excellent piece of work of art. Cir. late Qing dynasty (1860-1912)
