I have an interesting find, something I have never seen before so I am hoping someone here can illuminate my mind to this piece. Its an ink stone/stand? I am familiar with ink stones which are usually flat carved slabs but as a stand its strange. It has small bubbles in it which makes me think it is a kind of resin but its as heavy as a stone. I am sure someone will find one on aliexpress as I am sure its modern but its got a section with some script, does it say anything interesting (I think I can see 'Qianlong nian zhi' but obviously not period)? Do they normally make ink stones out of resin to immitate Duan? Thank you!
