Can't do so from these images other than to say that it is Chinese, probably a modern casting/molded object rather than carved stone given the combination of its apparent detail with the apparent lack of care paid to its conservation. Genuine antique inkstones of this type are quite expensive, hence their attractiveness to modern forgers: | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
