Description Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description This brush washer would have been placed on a scholar's desk. The shape of this brush washer is often referred to as a "beehive" due to its wide base and only slightly narrower mouth. The entire vessel is coated with a clear glaze. On opposite sides of the vessel there are two roses painted on the white background in a copper red underglaze. The leaves and stems of the roses are painted on with overglaze enamels.
