We are pleased to offer for your buying consideration a WHIMSICAL MINIATURE ANTIQUE PAINTED PORCELAIN TEA POT WITH PLAYFUL CATS MOTIF!

Whether you are a collector of antique miniature porcelain PORTRAIT PIECES, or wanting the perfect DOLL ACCESSORY to display with antique dolls, your FAVORITE BEBE would be THRILLED to have this ENCHANTING tea pot at their next tea party!
The tea pot is made of white EMBOSSED PORCELAIN with lilac and yellow LUSTREWARE accents, and features a cameo portrait of a pair of SWEET KITTENS depicting a little orange tabby cat dressed in Victorian little boy's clothes while seated on a red bench reading a book as his grey tabby "Mother" cat looks approvingly on! The tea pot is wonderfully done by a combination of HAND PAINTING on TRANSFER, and the workmanship is just lovely with AMAZING DETAIL! It measures a DIMINUTIVE 3 3/4" tall, 5 3/4" wide including it's spout and handle, and is 2 5/8" wide across the top; the lid is missing, This piece was originally part of a HARD TO FIND miniature toy tea set featuring cats in different playful poses; in any event it could definitely stand on its own merit! The piece is of GERMAN origin circa late 1800's, and is marked "Germany" stamped in gold paint on the bottom, appearing to have no chips, repairs or restorations!
For scale purposes we have showcased this sweet little miniature with our 16" French R.D. Bebe doll, and we thought it would look charming with little flowers inside the pot displayed on a doll's table-------the possibilities are ENDLESS to showcase this charming little miniature!
