Period: mid Qing dynasty (1644-1911)
Medium: green jade, cloisonné enamel

The brown tip is shaped like a bamboo shoot tapering to a sharp point. The plain cylindrical handle is fashioned of jade and decorated with a dragon and a phoenix in relief, with meandering patterns and lotuses on the two ends, and a baby dragon resting on the top. Attached to the end of the handle is a cloisonné enamel head cup for holding the animal hair of the brush. The finish is pure and smooth. 
  Made by the imperial workshop of the Qing court, the brush combines jade carving and enamel techniques. The beautiful design and craftsmanship make it a rarity with high artistic value.
