This little beer-lover is amazingly lifelike, with his beaming, pudgy face and stein held to his heart. There is an almost Roman portraiture quality to the bust, which lifts of to reveal a mustard pot. The two little barrels are for toothpicks and the original mustard spoon, stored behind the figure, is intact. It is in excellent shape with only minimal wear to the over-glaze paint and almost none to the oil gilding. French or German, late Nineteenth Century. Approximately three inches by 3-1/4 inches by 3-3/4 inches tall.
