Just the right gift for the scholar for the holidays. A very sweet small blue and white water dropper (suiteki) used to drip water onto the solid inkstone when doing calligraphy and sumi ink drawings. The top is decorated with an underglaze design of a floral spray. Measures only 1 3/4" by 1 1/4" and is 5/8" tall to the top of the slightly dome piece. It shows no sign of wear - so we believe it dates anywhere from 1925- 1940s.
