Small circular ink rubbing stone with wood cover
China, 19th century
A small ink rubbing stone of circular shape. The stone slopes downward towards the top, where it forms a semi-circular cavity. The stone is of uniform black colour and shows signs of use. The back of the inkstone is engraved with a two-character inscription, reading Yu Dian, meaning “rainy land”. The inkstone has retained its original wood cover.
