Decorated in a rich green glaze, this Kangxi period frog water dropper would have adorned a scholar’s desk. As he used the water to mix the ink for his calligraphy a scholar would certainly have been as amused by the personality of this little amphibian as we are today. The frog was a symbol of good luck, and as he lives in the water he would certainly be an appropriate figure to dispense water-which he cleverly does from the hollow stem of the lotus on his back. Measuring 5″ across and in good condition. Circa 1700. (possibily later)
