Fairings are small souvenir china boxes and figurines that were sold at country fairs during the nineteenth century. Most were made in Germany. Many had bedtime themes. I find them adorable. This is one of two that I have listed. This one is more sensitive with the inscription referring to the mother and baby with father standing by the bed.
Size: 3" tall; 3 3/8" wide.
Condition: Good to Very Good. Some loss of gold-colored borders. Expected minor wear.
