Unusual dated brushwasher and ink box, combination with lid.

There is a hole drilled at the bottom and a small crack coming out of it, otherwise excellent condition. H: 13.4cm/5.2in and D: 6.8cm/2.8in.

Fine horn personal seal in standard “Kaishu’ script acquired in Kunming, Yunnan in the late 1980s carved from horn, this was well used when I got it so will give it a “guestimate” age of around 50 years- possibly older. The color of the horn is quite light for buffalo and has a very appealing grain to it. H: 7.8cm/3.1in and 1.2cm/.6in x 1.2cm/.6in.
