Wang Bing Rong (1840-1900), a notable potter and porcelain carver, successfully transformed the technique of carved bamboo to porcelains and specialized in porcelain with carved decoration, some like ivory carvings. Active in Tongzhi to Guangxu period (1862-1908). The matching stand is elegantly carved of dark hardwood. Compare with a yellow-glazed brush pot, offered by Sotheby’s New York, in their ‘Important Chinese Art’ sale on March 20th, 2019, lot 780. Note the resemblance of the minute details in the treatment of the gnarly trees on both subjects.
