Chinese Green Jade Calligraphy Brush, large
Early 20th century.
This gorgeous vintage Japanese calligraphy brush make wonderful objet. This piece would be so beautiful styled on a desk, coffee table, or shelves, atop coffee table books and nestled next to a candle.
It is handmade out of natural bone, horse hair, wood, and green stone. They were originally used as Japanese Calligraphy Art Brushes, and have become collector's items, and I've seen extremely unique pieces listed at over $1,200.
