A very beautiful museum quality Hetian mutton fat nephrite jade brush washer from the Qing Dynasty 18th century. The quality of the jade is excellent with a wonderful fatty luster and silky feel. There is a Qianlong reign mark carved into the bottom of the piece (which was likely added at a later date), and fine calligraphy on one side of the vessel. It measures approximately 3.5 inches long and 1.5 inch high and weighs 152.1 grams. Brush washers were part of a scholar's desk supplies and since scholarly and artistic pursuits were very highly regarded, the tools of the trade such as brush rests and brush washers were made of the finest materials. This brush washer is carved with an auspicious bat and peach design. It is in fine condition with no chips or cracks. The surface retains the original final wax polish typical of the era. The jade is typical of the creamy white river jade found in the Khotan Province during the Qing Dynasty. A very fine piece for the jade connoisseur.
