The Villeroy & Boch Mettlach company has long been famous for the production of steins. This unique and scarce biscuit barrel, circa early 1900's, is a must have for the serious collector. The pottery barrel is completely surrounded with an incised landscape scene of white and brown cows, tan hills in the distance, olive green grass and meandering blue stream against a solid pastel blue sky. The top and bottom portion of the barrel is decorated with white raised diamonds and beads against blue/gray, brown and honey/tan bands. The lid, with full-body cow finial, rim and bale handle are silver plated. The barrel measures 5 1/4" across; 6 3/4" to top edge of the barrel and 10 3/4" to the top of the handle. The base has the impressed 'Abbey' mark, circa 1883-1931; 'Geschutz'; '12'; '1' and a small '12' stamp in blue. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; the silver plate rim and handle shows minor wear; the lid (not finial) has been re-silvered at some time and the finial is somewhat loose because it cannot be tightened completely; some minor interior stains from usage. A beautiful piece of Mettlach artistry.
