Match Holders Antique Austrian Cigar Tobacco Pug Dog 1800s 1900s Ceramic Mark At:
This is a hard to find 3-D antique circa 1890's era Austrian / German ceramic smoking set with impressed marks A over T and number 23 on the bottom and a gold washed finish. It has a cute pug dog laying in front and a old cart on left side and a wicker basket on the right side and in back a floral front and wooden gated back holder and a draped fabric looking material on the right corner . Holders are for matches, pipe and Tobacco.
There are no chips, cracks, etc., but there is some overall crazing.
Measurements: 8" long x 5 1/4" wide x 6" tall.
IF ANYONE KNOW THE ORIGINAL MAKER OF THIS PIECE OR THE INITIALS A OVER T, I WOULD APPRECIATE THE INFORMATION.
This is such an exceptionally example of antique pottery made in Austria. Cute pug dog figure.
Thanks for looking.
