This is a very finely modeled Schafer Vater porcelain creamer, featuring a boy's laughing face. Even his individual teeth can be seen. The piece has a pink wash over it and a shiny glaze which really heightens the detail. I've never seen anything like it. It's a little individual creamer measuring about 2 3/4 inches or 7cm tall. A very fine piece! In perfect condition. Incised maker's crown and R mark and number on the bottom. The Schafer Vater or Schafer & Vater factory was located in Volkstedt-Rudolstadt, Germany, and operated from 1890 to 1962. This piece likely dates from around 1900.
