This is a hand-painted smoking set from the late 1800's featuring a dapper fox reading and holding a drink. It bears the Karl Schneider mark and is numbered. It is almost 5 inches tall and 4 inches wide. There appears to have been a repair to a break from long ago. This is almost impossible to see from the front, but is visible on the bottom and back where a slightly darker colored bonding material was used. The price reflects this repair.
