Palm wood brushpots are very rare. I believe I have only seen one, in the collection of a well-known American collector. None ever seen in the Beijing market. The grain is fantastic: the basic color is dark brown, but there are orange stripes throughout. This is one piece of palmwood; the base is not added in, but has been the base since the pot was made. This pot is 19.5 cm at the diameter, 20 cm high; and weighs 2.8 kg. A somewhat larger one, 21.5 cm high and 23.5 cm at the diameter, was in the Robert and Alice Piccus Collection and was sold in New York by Christie's in New York in 1997.
