White jade brushpots are rare and often reasonably small in size due to the limited availability of the material. Compare a plain white jade brushpot of similar size, formerly in the collection of the Milwaukee Art Museum and illustrated in Post-Archaic Chinese Jades from Private Collections, S. Marchant & Son, London, 2000, cat.no. 40. See also one carved around the sides with a landscape scene, sold in our Hong Kong rooms, 27th April 2003, lot 104, which is reminiscent of a white jade brushpot carved with the ‘Three Friends of Winter’, illustrated in Zhongguo yuqi quanji, vol. 6, Shijiazhuang, 1993, pl. 280.
