This large, eight-sided water dropper is set on a high foot ring and features a flat top which slants slightly towards the centre and a spout placed on the shoulder. Painted on the top of the dropper is a lovely blue and white design of a stand of bamboo, replete with leaves and budding flowers. The design is simple, yet effective as dimension is created by the darker shades of blue used to colour the branches and tips of the flowers. The sides of this dropper are further adorned with floral sprays which elegantly stretch across the side panels.
