This is a substantial scroll pot. It is about 100 years old, beautiful grained, elm wood (yu mu in Chinese). This is not for "snobs" but for people who will appreciate the lovely grain, who will need the size and will appreciate the care and wear this pot has. It is not in perfect condition, it has been noticeably but nicely repaired. The bass clips inside haven been well affixed. There are few other defects in the pot, all easily seen. But it is in good shape and will last another 100 years...

The 3 legged Chan is a mythical Chinese animal. It is normally seen with another mythical figure, Liu Han. Here, we have a very large tree root Chan: the original shape of the root has been kept, just a little enhancement here and there. The Chan is large and imposing: it is sitting on a lotus leave and crouching, ready to jump at a moment's notice. Its appearance is rough, but the total effect is one of strength and vitality. The face of the Chan is at first glace quite ugly...

This is an awesome soapstone Stone Mountain with two monkeys. This is a stunning desk ornament. It is one piece of soapstone: the stand is dark stained soapstone. The Mountain has faded into a greyish stone, rich with glistening patina. The two monkeys are carved rather roughly, but still look fine. Their eyes are filled with pearl dust, giving them a lustrous look. This is an early 19th Century piece...

The Very Good one is well formed and potted. I acquired it many years ago from C.Y. Tse a well=known Hong Kong dealer. The Great One was acquired in Beijing from a favorite dealer.
