Antique 1920s Porcelain Sch & Co CZECH Mug -Gilded Scene from the Czech composer Bedrich Smetana’s 1870 comic opera “The Bartered Bride. 3 7/8" high x 3 1/8" diam. Very pretty mug, showing a Transfer Print of a Victorian circus with gypsy dancing in the foreground and clowns, dancing dogs, performer in a carriage and strongman! Gorgeous piece. Gilt rim and gold embellishment, reads "Milostne zviratko Udelame z vas." Translation is roughly "beautiful carnival", so says the internet. With gold accents, floral border and trim and small applied porcelain dots accenting the mug. It is from the Opera or Play The Bartered Bride. Bottom is stamped: Cecho-SLOV. Sch & Co. I believe these were made circa 1920s. A really nice ethnic Czech piece of porcelain. I have 3 others from the same opera, that match. See my listing for the others I have. Photos do not show well because of the reflection off the shiny gold. The gold in actuality is brilliant and not worn. Mugs are perfect!
