Subject:Japanese bronze water dropper (suiteki)
Posted By: Glen Sun, Apr 15, 2018 IP: 2600:1700:e090:79a0:

Hello:

Thank you to anyone who might have information to share about this water dropper. I have seen similar examples in porcelain and bronze, and in varying quality. It appears to have been a popular design. This one has sheet gold applied over the pupils and a white glass or some other paste in the rest of the eyes.

I assume that it dates to the late Meiji or Taisho periods. If anyone has seen a published example I would be grateful to know about that.

Thanks!

Glen
