Description: Rock crystal. China, Qing 19th cent.

Ground from one piece of crystal, a water vessel for the calligrapher, displaying the form of a double gourd, called hulu. This is allegorical for the Immortal, as he always carried this – filled with elixir – with him. On the big squash, intricately hollowed out to shape a container, are several little ones and a bat on one side - symbol of fortune and long life. Complete preservation.
LENGTH 16,7 CM
From a Roman collection
