18th C. Chinese Brush Washer Qianlong Mark and Inscription
A few weeks ago I was at an estate auction here in New England with some pretty terrific Chinese Scholars Items from the 18th and 19th C. . Happily this particularly nice example went my way during the course of the day. Usually collectors and dealers at the previews examine the backs of things very carefully, maybe it was the odd lighting, maybe it was concerns over the upcoming storm? Who knows why the back of this piece went unnoticed. It did..
So here it is, a wonderful example bearing the mark of the Qianlong Emperor (1735-1796) and is of the period.
Size: 6.3" long and 5.25" wide and 1.82" high.
Trade inquiry's welcome.
