Copenhagen Porcelain Silver Lidded Stein/Tankard

Copenhagen Porcelain Silver Lidded Stein/Tankard

A rare Danish porcelain stein with incredibly well painted floral decoration. The silver and gilt silver lid is the finest sculptural silver work we have ever owned. We have yet to positively identify the equestrian battle scene depicted on the lid. Our best guess is that it is Hannibal at the battle Cannae but, we would appreciate hearing any other thoughts.
