Beautiful vintage porcelain silent butler romance scene
|| for item safn-2644
Beautifully decorated Vintage Porcelain Silent Butler, also used for crumbs. Measuring approximately a little over 5 1/2" wide, and stands about 3" tall. The Silent Butler features a large colorful Rococo romancing type scene. Beautiful turquoise coloring accented with detailed gold gilt trim. No hallmark on the bottom, just the number-"C9 355". May be from the 1940"s? Looks like one of the Kalk ones, but not marked so, and it may be Lefton. Gold metal filigree framework and lifter is bright and nice. The decorative flourish lifter of the lid is a bit loose, but these usually are. All handpainted scenes and decorative gold gilt is in overall wonderful condition-with no fading or areas missing. The gold decoration inside is also bright and shows no wear. No chips or cracks. Lovely Antique decorative & colorful romantic piece in nice condition.
