86c – Antique Majolica Black Child Bell
I am selling a great old Continental piece of Majolica. It is the figure of a Black child. She is also a bell which is approximately 8 1/2″ tall. The clapper has a wooden ball but I am doubtful that it is original as the metal is shiny. The condition of this piece is very good. It is slightly rough on the edges of the dress but there are no chips or cracks. The numbers on her are 405 0 and 54. I do not know the country of origin.
