c1800 Chinese Stoneware Paintbrush Pot Converted To Tankard


An interesting Chinese ceramic stoneware paint brush pot, c1800, that has been converted in Europe into a tankard.

The pot has polychromed painted decoration, depicting a person within a cartouche on both sides. The handle is made of bronze and is attached by the means of two rivets and also dates from the early 1800s.

There appears to be a slight bit of restoration on the top rim, but is nearly impossible to see.
