This antique pale luster porcelain piece is more of a miniature figurine than a vase. An open-top bag with a ribbon serves as the little vase. At the bottom is a black and white cat playing with a ball. Kitty sports a bow collar.
Measurements: approx 3” tall x 3-1/2” wide.
Markings: the back of the bag is inscribed with the number 1673. The number looks typical of German pieces made at the turn of the century.
Condition: crudely crafted piece with stray bits of clay fired into the design here and there, some typical chipping to the hand painting especially around the rim of the basket.
