Kangxi, Chinese early 18th century aubergine glazed small brush-washer. Excellent colour and modelling with small Tao-tie mask style grips/handles to the side. An excellent example of something made for the scholars table

the glaze gently pulls away and falls down from the rim a pools in the edges of the mask heads and around the foot rim

Technically very difficult to produce such a bright deep aubergine coloured glaze.

The under glaze body is an excellent white colour.
