Very special 19th century ivory brush pot; richly carved in deep relief with temples, trees, figures in everyday scenes. Quality of carving shows that this bitong was made by a highly skilled ivory carver.
A photo was taken with the pot illuminated from the inside.
The object shows an old restoration of a crack.
A few spots of damage to the "grid" at the back (please see photos).
The ivory is 15 mm thick at the top edge.
This brush pot comes with a certificate confirming the age and origin. The certificate was issued by a certified appraiser.
