This very nice modest sized brushpot is very nicely fluted. The carver creatively carved the surname of the owner-to-be, Jiang, in the side of the pot. It is almost like a shadow, almost better seen in a photograph than in the hand. This pot has a few normal nicks and scratches, indicative of regular use since it was made about 100 years ago. There are now other soapstone scholar's objects on this site: a very nice brushwasher, great Mountain with two monkeys, a seal and now this.
