An intriguing ceramic figure/lamp by Goldscheider Vienna, circa early 20th c. Entitled "A Little Snuff," modeled by Josef Lorenzl (Austrian 1892-1950). The piece depicts an 18th century dandy dressed in period clothes and pink stockings, smelling a bit of snuff! The ceramic is finely glazed and hand painted. Notice the flowers on the man's coat! Displays beautifully as a work of art, includes a banister to the back which gave the owner the option to have the figure electrified as a lamp. Marked with the appropriate Goldscheider Wien emblem as well with model number. Signed Lorenzl in in the black glazed base (hard to picture) and with an L emblem to the bottom of the banister.
Condition: In good, original condition with minimal areas of wear (including to top of the banister in the background).
Measurements: Total of 16 1/2 in x 6 in wide x 4 3/4 in at base
