Continental Majolica Figural Tobacco Jar Austro Hungarian 19th century
It is said that most continental majolica is unmarked or numerically marked and are most likely to be Austro Hungarian. I am going with this because I have no proof of maker on this piece. While knowing it to be a tobacco jar it also is impressed, under glaze, with numbers and perhaps a letter or two. The impression is hard to read. The night cap to this face is the lid. It measures 6 inches high x 3¼ inches wide and is unquestionably charming at best.
There is a very old dark nick out of the back of his scarf towards the bottom rim and is almost smooth. It is not the white glare spots that appear close to the nick. All else is in unharmed condition.
