A very fine, large and RARE antique porcelain Capodimonte beer stein, with N blue mark. This is really a beautiful antique porcelain piece, ALL decorated with figures motifs, women and children playing music in a garden background.
A boy on the lid holding a cup and urn. From inside all gold gilding decoration.The handle is a form of a winged semi nude woman, attached to the body with a bronze gilded ormolu hinge. There is a tiny chip in the right hand of a boy (as shown in photos), but not noticeable due to the heavy work on the body. Stamped with N mark at the underside (not very clear, but still there). The gold gilding decoration gives more elegance and luxury to the work. Please see photos carefully to admire the beauty of the work.
H : 13 1/2 inches (34 cm). Maximum wide : 8 inches (20 cm) to the end of the handle. Diameter at base : 5 1/2 inches (15 cm). No chips, cracks or any damage (except that I mentioned).
