CARVED AGATE WATER POT
4 cm high, 6 cm wide
The small water pot is carved naturalistically in the form of a gnarled trunk of pine, the orange-brown inclusions of the stone utilized to articulate the branches. The interior is polished and well hollowed. The semi-translucent stone is of pale honey colour.
For another small agate pine-form washer see Christie’s, Chinese Ceramics, Works of Art and Textiles, London, 14 May 2014, lot 881.
