A very large bamboo brushpot
Superb relief carving depicting two monkeys teaming up to harvest several overripe peaches from a giant tree amid craggy rockwork.
One of the mates is already sitting on a branch and helps his companion to climb up.
The rim bears a deeply incised meander border and an engraved copper mounting.
19th Century - C.1875
The copper mounting is original but slightly warped.
Several natural age cracks.
Superb golden-brown patina !
