A large ceramic water dropper in the shape of a carp rising from the lotus pads. Water is added through a hole that is in the shape of a lotus flower. The body is glazed in an off white glaze.

The base is flat and unglazed with a stamped black mark that reads MADE IN CHINA.

MEASUREMENTS

8 ½” (21.6 cm) long x 3” (7.6 cm) wide x 5” (12.7 cm) tall. Weighs 10.4 oz (295 g)

CONDITION

There is a glaze chip near the base and a tiny glaze chip on the upper tail fin. There is a long kiln flaw just behind the top the head and another smaller one on the side near the tail. There are smaller kiln flaws, such as small reserve spots. The glaze has crazing.

A large figural water dropper for those large projects. I love the long life symbolism of the carp.
