I bought these brushes from one of the markets in Beijing. I was happy because I paid less than one fifth what they were being sold in Singapore. As an aspiring painter, I loved these bold and beautiful brushes. The second picture is of the brush that I ended up paying a little more for. Not confirmed, but was told it's old and jade... Again, not confirmed and not really believe it!! Your thoughts?

    They are truly beautiful. We don't get to see such lovely things like that here in Oz. Although there are many reproductions of the old things these appear to be origjnal.

    They used stones such as agate and jasper And other gemstones for handles

    Thomas, we lived in Singapore for 5 years, so it was pretty easy to hop around to various Asian countries... That's where most of my Asian things came from.

    Rose... Thank you for the lovely comments. One of my favorite places to travel to was Australia. In fact we are hoping to get an assignment there one of these years!!
