brushpot with scenes of country pursuits

Qing dynasty


This desktop accessory has minutely detailed pictorial designs created with flush and relief inlay.

The "100-treasure inlay" technique uses a multitude of materials, like amber, coral, ivory, mother of pearl, silver, various precious stones, and wood.

While working at a desk indoors, the owner of this brush pot might have been inspired to daydream about simple country pleasures.
