(1) Baby feeder of bronze. Indo/China.(2) 'Dug-out' treen tinder box. Eighteenth century. Probably North European.(10) Japanese bronze pen and ink case.(12) Not sure about this but possibly a Japanese bronze 'sword breaker'. Painted to resemble a fan. This would enable someone to sneak up on a sword carrying Japanese Samurai or Bonsai last word only joking..
Apart from 10. which you got - bar a whisker (It's a brush and ink holder) all the others are varied examples of No.7. from the previous blog. If you start to think like a Cantonese scholar/scribe of yesteryear and take the clue from the title, I'm sure the penny will drop. May your Japanese Bonsai never be dishonoured nor its sword broken.
Suitaki or water dropper seems to fit the bill
I take my hat off to you Rog, yes suitaki are characterised by a small filling hole and a minute outlet.I believe the thumb was placed over the filler and the outlet was pointed at the ink-slab and a few drops allowed to escape by easing the thumb slightly. Most of them had a rough, flat base with which to grind the moisture into the ink-slab and produce a little ink which could be picked up on the brush.
