We are pleased to offer for your buying consideration a CHARMING ANTIQUE MINIATURE GERMAN PORCELAIN CHILDREN FIGURAL MATCH SAFE!
This CHARMING COUPLE will endear you with their VICTORIAN OUTFITS and wonderful FACIAL FEATURES and coloring, and would appeal to both doll and antique tobacciana collectors alike and command a presence in any advanced collection!
Most likely German made circa late 1800's, the match safe measures 4" tall and 3 3/4" wide, with the boy and girl figures measuring 3 1/4" tall, and the base measuring 2 7/8" wide, with the actual holder measuring 1 1/2" in diameter. They are made of HAND PAINTED porcelain and are of the HIGHEST QUALITY, with a very SMOOTH and SHINY patina, painted on the front with lovely blue and yellow PASTEL COLORS and accented with RICH GOLD trim! Each child is dressed in very FANCY ENSEMBLES and charming little hats, placing little painted PORCELAIN FISHES in the wonderfully detailed BASKET CONTAINER that would have housed the matches! On the front of the base is a cluster of sweet little BLUE FLOWERS; there was definitely alot of WORKMANSHIP that went into this FINE PIECE! On the back of the base are the faintly incised numbers "3449", and there appear to be no other chips, cracks, hairlines or restorations to the porcelain----------a LOVELY display piece!
An absolute ENCHANTING ACCESSORY with antique dolls, as we have shown displayed with our 13" antique French Fashion doll; they could even be used as a BACKDROP in a scene or adorable held by a larger Bebe!
This CHARMING ANTIQUE MINIATURE GERMAN PORCELAIN CHILD FIGURAL MATCH SAFE would be a WELCOME ADDITION to any collection, and is being offered for the first time on Ruby Lane your buying consideration-------an absolute CHARMING COUPLE!
Any other doll or accessory items used for display are not included in this offering, unless otherwise specified.
