This is a cute example of very old German bisque-ware. A country boy resting against a tree, the trunk is also a bud container. This is old and has wear to the colour, but we think it keeps it casual and fun. The back remains unglazed/unpainted as was usual for this kind of bisque. A perfect little vase for a garden rose, this is sure to bring a smile to your face. Circa 1890's.
A spill vase is (was) a small vase resembling a bud vase. It was usually kept on the fireplace mantle and was filled with rolled paper or very thin wood sticks (Spill) which where used to transfer fire from the fireplace to candles, lamps or a gentlemen's cigar (matches used to be costly).
