Chinese Qing Ceramic Water Dripper

Lot 0009 Details

Description
A very appealing Chinese water dripper in the form of a frog climbing on the side of a rolled lotus leaf. Water drippers were one of the essential calligraphy tools used by the Chinese scholar to hold water and drip it onto the ink stone for the purpose of mixing the ground ink. These small but important objects were crafted so that a single measured drop at a time could be dripped to ensure the proper ratio of ink to water while mixing. This free-form, teal glazed dripper would have been submerged in water to fill it, and then held between the thumb and forefinger, with the thumb covering the small hole at the top to control the rate of drip from the spout. This delightful dripper is in perfect condition and dates from the Qing Dynasty, 19th C. DIMENSIONS: 4” long (10 cm) x 2 ½” high (6.2 cm).
