The watercup and dropper combined in the shape of a lotus leaf and seed-pod, the stem forming a short handle, a small pod the brush rest. The two parts have a communicating water channel masked by a black crab. All done in underglaze blue, the dropper with a few touches of copper red.
Very rare collector's piece, in perfect condition.
