A Chinese carved horn scholar's table article. The cupped form itself carved to look like a large lotus leaf. Carved lotus leaves and blossoms also issue from its center. The sides carved with details of lotus leaves and blossoms, a fish and a pair of mandarin ducks further accentuate the aquatic theme. The form and motif may suggest the object was used as a small water coupe but would also work as a paper weight. The carved bottom depicting a pair of dragons encircling a two character mark. Good condition with minor shrinkage and movement of the organic material as might be expected with age. Length 4 1/4 inches (10.8 cm)
