This carp-shaped water dropper is unique in that its tail is larger than those of many similar vessels. The vessel was entirely glazed including the base and retains wide marks of refractory spurs in three places. This is one of many figurative water droppers produced in large quantities within the vicinity of Bunwon-ri, Gwangju-si, and Yeoju-si in Gyeonggi-do in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
