A celadon water dropper made in the Goryeo Dynasty.
In the Korean peninsula, calligraphy became popular in the latter half of the Goryeo dynasty, and the value of water droplets increased among calligraphy tools.
Due to the simple structure of pouring water into the inkstone, various shapes are made and animals are used as in this item.
It is made to give a clean impression, but not only the face, claws and fish, but also the coat of the bear's fur can be engraved with fine intaglio patterns.
The beautiful gray-blue celadon glaze casually reveals the pattern.
It is a sitting bear holding a fish, and the face with a slightly silly expression looks both adorable and somewhat human.
In the Korean Peninsula, there is a myth of a bear who wanted to become a human, and it may have such a meaning.
As for animals, there are many turtles and birds, but there are almost no bears left, making it a rare item.

There is no conspicuous flaws.It has good luster throughout and is in good condition.
