China Yixing early 20th Water Dropper Pumpkin Scholar

This is a water dropper, used by the scholar to dribble water on to an ink stone; it is shaped like a pumpkin and the calligraphy on the side refers to its pumpkin shape. The entire effect is very realistic The pumpkin stem looks correct and also covers the water in the vessel. But it also looks like a garlic clove.
