The Brush Pot is one of the central objects from ‘the Scholar’s Table’. On a Chinese scholar’s table in the middle of the 18th or the 19th Century, there were a number of key things: brushes for calligraphy, a Bitong (the brush pot) to put brushes in, and an ink stone to grind up ink, and of course handmade paper. Bitongs were traditionally carved with scenes from Chinese Classical Literature and Mythology. They are sometimes playful and sometimes moralistic. The bitong decoration served as inspiration and to remind the Scholar of his obligations concerning the mores of the time.eBay Conditions of Sale.
