A Chinese brush pot is a container for holding the brushes used by scribes for Chinese calligraphy. These are typically carved from bamboo or jade with ornate motifs symbolizing concepts such as longevity. Antique examples are now valued highly.

The brushes would be rinsed and stored in the pot with their handle down so that the bundles of hair would keep their shape and point.
