Thank you Jeff,
GERMAN METTLACH. PUNCH BOWL SET, circa 1890.
Rare and fabulous, this splendid Punch Bowl, Cover and Stand from German Mettlach called "Gnomes Working at Wine Press and Drinking" is a superb antique. The condition is great and the art work is first rate. It is completely hand painted with gnomes , grapes and vines. This is as clean as you can ever hope to find. With almost no ware and there are no repairs.
Most impressive, the magnificent bowl shows a central reserve of gnomes at work collecting the grape harvest. The cover and stand, both equally beautiful are handsomely decorated with grapes and grape vines.....the attention to detail and marvelous coloration exquisitely rendered...it is truly a fine Work of Art.
