A very rare piece made by Meissen in the mid to late 19th century. It is a dollhouse or poupee sized bourdaloue.
An extremely rare piece and I could not find another. They really did make everything for dollhouses! A must have for your high end doll : This shape is often confused with sauceboats which is pretty disgusting and a bit funny. It's a chamber pot for ladies!The bourdaloue is hand painted with a floral arrangement to the sides, a small flower to the front and a relief design to the paste all around with a fun handle with a bird sitting on it which is not uncommon on the normal sized pieces - not sure why there is a bird but hey it looks great when on display! The piece displays nicely but the handle was off and is reglued and the tail of the bird is missing its tip.
An easy fix for any restorer or fine the way it is. It might be the only one out there so one can forgive the damage I think. Unglazed bottom with a crossed swords mark to it as well as an X in blue and the usual incised model number as shown. A fun and quirky piece and definitely a conversation starter : The piece is 0.875 inches tall without the handle which adds another 0.5 inches, 2.375inches long and and 1.125 inches wide.
