Rare Chinese Inner Painting Crystal Brush Pot


This Chinese Thick Crystal brush pot is a beautiful example of the Inner Painting Technique. This technique had been guarded as a secret of the industry and not disclosed to the public until the end of the last century. To paint the inside of the bottle, the artist must paint backwards. Concentration is crucial to make precise strokes. A skilled artist may complete a simple bottle in a week while something special may take a month or more. The best craftsmen may produce only a few bottles in a year. This particular piece is a one of kind, created by the eldest member a fourth generation family of artists that are one of the last families in China that create such a magnificent artistry. This piece contains a plastic inner liner to protect the inner painting.
