Small 17th century Korean water dropper of gray stoneware. This beehive shaped water dropper has an elegantly shaped spout with the control hole near the peak of the top of the vessel. It is the perfect kind of vessel that fits the description of many of the great Korean works -- a sensitivity to classical form, yet having the carefree elegance of a spontaneous work, and showing a kind of love of the rustic forms of Chinese and Korean potteries. Formerly part of the Paul Spheeris collection.
Age: 17th Century
Size: 2 inches high, 3-1/8 inch diam
