Nice old inkstone, circa Republic Era or earlier, with “bat in the” clouds motif, denoting good fortune. There is an owner’s name incised in traditional cursive script, Xuehong Zhang Yu, on the bottom and added later. A lovely little piece that embraces the natural shape of the stone into its design. This is an unusually thick piece, which in contemporary times would have been cut in two, to better utilize the value of the material. The grinding surface is worn smooth from years of use and is still fit for a modern day calligrapher. 10cm/4in x 9.3cm/3.7in x 3.2cm/1.3in.
