We are pleased to offer for your buying consideration a CHARMING ANTIQUE MINIATURE GERMAN PORCELAIN FIGURAL CAKE TOPPER!
This SWEET MINIATURE would most likely have originally been used to decorate the tops of cakes from the Victorian era to the 1940's, and although we have had similar pieces like these in the past, we especially love the adorable CAT & DOG THEME-----------a WHIMSICAL and TINY TREASURE!
Circa 1900 and of GERMAN ORIGIN, the figurine is made of FINE QUALITY porcelain and of FABULOUS DETAIL including unique deep GREEN FLOCKING on the settee to create a textured velvet fabric and original GOLD GILDING on the figures and settee trim! The settee measures a DIMINUTIVE 2 3/4" wide across the sofa arms, 2 1/8" tall to the top of the back and 1 1/8" deep, and the molding of the cat and dog faces are simply PRECIOUS; you don't have to appreciate animals to love this little piece! The back of the settee is incised "GERMANY" with the letters "G. G." and what appears to be the number "5", and other than some minor paint wear to the gold gilding and to the flocking on the settee, you will find this sweet miniature just adorable and DISPLAY READY for your collection!
For scale purposes we are showing this PRECIOUS PAIR being modeled by our 13" antique Bru Smiler doll, who loves it's playful ANIMAL MOTIF----------------is YOUR antique doll and miniature collection in need of such a UNIQUE PIECE?
