Antique Hand Carved Soap Stone Inkwell and Brush Holder

This unusual item I believe is an old chinese hand carved soapstone inkwell and brush holder.

A friend found this at the beach. I have cleaned it the best I can. It was extremely filthy when I got it. I have taken so many photos of it and cant seem to get the colour right. It is a beige colour with what looks like red veins running through it. It is two little bowls with flowers and leaves from the front with black areas I think are meant to be there. It has etchings in the stone all over the front of it. In very good condition considering it is over 100 years old with no cracks or chips other than a very little nibble on the rim of one of the bowls,

Measures 17cm long x 5 cm wide x 11 xm high Weighs almost 1 kg
