From our European Porcelain Collection, a fine German Volkstedt neoclassical-style milk jug, late 18th century circa 1780-1790, depicting two reserves of young boys engaged in intellectual and artistic pursuits, all very well-executed in polychrome enamels with generous use of gilding.

Size and condition: 3 3/4 inches tall, 4 inches across spout to handle. Enamel and gilding are essentially 99% intact. There is one very small chip with associated gilding loss on the spout, visible only when looking down from top of jug.
