$275.00



Old Japanese water dropper, suiteki, in the form of a scratching rabbit. A water dropper is a small container that was used to hold water which was added a drop at a time to an inkstone when grinding an ink stick. Today we enjoy and collect them as works of art rather than using them. In excellent condition, our little hare measures about 2.5" long, 2.75" high, and 2.75 inches front to back including ears.
