A 19th century Japanese Daoist cylindrical bamboo brush pot or bitong. This large segment of bamboo has been meticulously hollowed out and adorned on the outer surface with a captivating design of two figures beneath bamboo trees engaged in a board game. The bamboo exhibits a rich golden patina, evoking its age beautifully. Ideal for dry flower arrangements, the bamboo is skilfully carved, showcasing bright caramel hues and exemplifying excellent craftsmanship from the early Meiji period. Very good antique condition.
