An antique porcelain chamberstick featuring swans in a lake. Each matching portrait is detailed with snowy white swans against a blue water background. Surrounding the portraits you'll see gold foil decoration which has faded a bit with time. The handle has a gold line for decoration down the center and the mold itself is very ornate with beading around the irregular border.
Although unmarked this is Bavarian or German in origin. We have seen pieces from Bavaria with this same portrait scene. We would date this to late 19th Century.
Measuring 6 inches in diameter at the bottom we find this to be in wonderful condition without damage to porcelain.
