Darling little enamel cup or mug used by its former owner when she was a child in the 1930s.

Made in Germany, the mug is typical of baby cups and children's serveware made in Europe in the early 20th century depicting characters from fairy tales or other whimsical illustrations. The entire body is a powder blue color and features a girl wearing a white headpiece, red skirt and yellow booties. She holds an umbrella under one arm and carries a basket over the other, while being followed by an inquisitive goose. This scene may be a reference to the Brothers Grimm fairy tale "The Goose Girl," a take-off from some of M. I. Hummel's art, or simply a cute picture of a girl and a goose, geese being a popular motif in children's wares. The rolled rim is black. Stamped "Made in Germany." Estate sale find. Great child's room, nursery or playroom decor.

APPROX. MEASUREMENTS:
2 15/16 in. tall x 2 7/8 in. in diameter
Capacity: 6 fluid ounces

CONDITION: Very good antique condition with several areas where the enamel has chipped off, which is consistent with age and previous use. There's some light staining inside on the bottom and on one side of the handle. Please see photos. The rim is in very good condition with only one very shallow nick, and the image is still bright and crisp.

A NOTE ABOUT VINTAGE: Everything we sell at AlegriaCollection is vintage, meaning that it's at least 20 years old, often much older. Consequently, most of our items show evidence of previous use and, in general, this is viewed as adding to the aged character of a piece. We make every effort to accurately describe any flaws and encourage you to carefully read the description, particularly when purchasing vintage as a gift.
