We are pleased to offer for your buying consideration an EXQUISITE ANTIQUE HAND PAINTED PORCELAIN MUG/TOILETTE JAR!
Of both FUNCTIONAL and DECORATIVE use, this ENCHANTING PIECE came from a collection of other QUALITY hand painted items, which we will be offering for sale shortly!
Possibly of HUNGARIAN ORIGIN circa late 1800's and made as a COMMEMORATIVE PIECE, because of the wonderful SMALL SIZE and GORGEOUS PINK colors, this lovely mug would command a presence in any collection!
This TINY TREASURE measures a total of 3 1/2" tall, and 3 1/8" in diameter across it's rim. It is made of HAND PAINTED porcelain with a lovely feminine pink color and RICH GOLD painted trim, possibly 24k as with most of these DECORATIVE VICTORIAN painted pieces! The piece is FINELY MADE, with a bouquet of SPRING FLOWERS painted across the front, and a banner with the words "LZEPES-BELAI, EMLEK" scripted in gold. We think this lovely mug was originally made as a commemorative piece, as the word "Emlek" means "Memory" in Hungarian. Except for the numbers "186" painted on the bottom, there are no other marks, and with the exception of some wear to the gold gilding, there are no apparent chips, cracks, hairlines on this absolutely CHARMING accessory piece!
An absolute ENCHANTING DISPLAY, or because of the beautiful feminine colors a wonderful accessory with antique dolls, as we have shown with our 13" antique French Fashion doll!
This EXQUISITE VICTORIAN ANTIQUE HAND PAINTED PORCELAIN MUG/TOILETTE JAR would be a WELCOME ADDITION to any collection, and is being offered for the first time on Ruby Lane your buying consideration-------a CHARMING little piece with both FORM and FUNCTION!
Any other doll or accessory items used for display are not included in this offering, unless otherwise specified.
