CATALOGUE NOTES

A blue and white brush pot, straight sided on three feet with a ridged rim, finely painted in shades of underglaze blue with a continuous scene depicting a tall, bearded old man holding a stick and his attendant coming towards four friends sitting in front of a table on which a ruyi scepter, a symbol of office, lays. One is playing the lute and the other three are sitting at ease, round a small table on which there is a vase, listening to the music. On the other side of the group stands a scholar painting on a rock, his attendant nearby, a friend looks on. In the background bamboo and a terrace, in the foreground stylized rockwork and "V" shaped grasses. The rim painted with a cloud motif.
