Old Schafer & Vater Wind Up Musical Monk Decanter - How Dry I Am

Old Schafer & Vater Wind Up Musical Monk Decanter - How Dry I Am

This large porcelain monk is a vintage decanter from Schafer & Vater of Germany from the early 1900's. Besides being a wonderful decanter this is also a music box. When wound and lifted off the table to pour, this happy monk plays two tunes. One song is How Dry I Am but I don't recognize the other tune. It is done in a brown glaze and across the front of the monk's robe it reads; Spiritually Uplifting! The corked stopper has its original porcelain cap. It does not have the crown mark but is obviously an S & V piece.

It measures about 11 1/2" high and is in very good working condition with no chips, cracks or other damage.

The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
