Hand painted porcelain is so beautiful if created in a large professional studio, factory decorating department or home studio environment.
This lovely porcelain stein is beautifully decorated and completely covered with bunches of shaded lush, ripe, red currants nestled among variegated green and cream foliage, suspended from dark brown vines. The background and handle is a blend of pale yellow, gray, pastel green, reddish-brown and teal. The stein measures 4 7/8" in height, 3 5/8" across the base and 2 5/8" across the top. The porcelain blank is stamped "B P CO over F O", circa 1900, and is signed "Swift and dated 1907" by the decorating artist. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint. If you appreciate hand-painted porcelain or collect steins this is a must
