Japanese Blue and White Porcelain Brush Pot
The landscape scene on this artfully painted Japanese Blue and White Porcelain Brush Pot depicts figure in a boat is drifting near the shore; birds are flying among the trees; and a house that appears to be on a hillside. There are also birds depicted on the reverse and a drifting boat. The upper rim is decorated with simple rings, one thick and the lower thin.
