Footnotes

  • Provenance 來源:
    A private Californian collection

    It is rare to find a zitan brushpot of such large size, all carved from a single trunk, due to the sheer cost of the material. The current lot is remarkable for its deep-purple wavy textures, and the fact that the base of the brushpot has never been detached.
