Antique Chinese Scholars Carved Dragon Stone Ink Pot :
I bought this from the estate of a 93 year old woman who had an extensive collection of antique Chinese and Japanese artifacts including pottery, tansu, and carved stone. This is an unusual piece. It is carvedfrom one piece with the inside container with lid. It smells like it held ink but I am not sure. The outercarved stone is highly carved with design of dragon and foo lion. It is in excellent condition. Thereis a tiny chip in the outer stone on an edge. I believe it is a 'Scholar's ink well' of some kind.Archaic Seal on the bottom.2.75"inch Tall2.25"inches DiamiterInner container 1.5" TallAll one piece. 3 pieces in all.weighs: 7.1oz without stand
