Today’s post continues to look at various suiteki.  Almost all of these being shown are in bronze; however, many in the market are ceramic and this is particularly true of very old Chinese water droppers.

Just check out eBay today and you will see around 140 of them being sold and almost all of them are ceramic.  I doubt we would use a ceramic one in our displays as they tend to be a bit too reflective and shiny to us.  We like the various animal shapes but we have included a few today of fruit and vegetables.
