Gentleman Bottle Stopper #4

This is a bottle stopper made by Meissen in the 19th century. It is in the form of a gentleman's head with long hair and decorative collar around his neck. He is a bit chubbier than the other one I own. The porcelain head is connected with a long thin metal piece to where a metal plate would ahve been at the bottom of the cork which is now missing. The rest is all original still! The cork has a decorative metal ring to the top which has oxidized over the years. The cork is very old and not flexible anymore. The porcelain head is in perfect condition. Since the metal plate underneath the cork is gone we can in this case remove the cork to see the mark. It is marked with the straight small blue crossed swords with the dots at the end underneath between the head and the cork. The entire piece is 3.625 inches tall. The cork is 1.875 inches long and the head is 1.25 inches wide. Please email me for more information or other pictures.
