Strawberry Finial Lid

This is a fun single lid made in Germany in the 18th century. I am leaning towards it being made at Frankenthal but Ludwigsburg or Meissena re the other two options. I don't recall having ever seen a finial like it before. The lid would have been for a coffee pot and it is hand painted with some nice puce flowers of very high quality, a brown trim to the edge and a fantastic strawberry finial including the fruit, leaf and a flower. Really well done! The lid is in great condition with to the leaf and parts of the stem missing. Unmarked which would be the norm for a lid. The lid is 1.5 inches tall without the ring underneath and 2.875 inches in diameter. The out diameter of the ring that would sit inside the coffee pot top is 2.375 inches. Please email me for more information or photos.

Price is $199
