Antique German Pug Cider Barrel Wagon Tantalus Mugs


Antique German porcelain cider barrel wagon. This is an interesting little novelty likely for port or heavy cider. The dog is porcelain in good condition with some slight scuffing from the metal wagon apparatus but no chips or damage to report. The barrel is hand blown enameled glass with a lovely floral decor. The barrel is in excellent condition. The wagon is metal possibly once gold gilt now pewter painted. The paint shows some flaking but all metal is intact. The glass handle mugs are a more recent but vintage addition and are not original to the cart. Originals would have matched barrel and would have been enameled as well. The cart wheels move and there are eight mugs total. The cart with dog measures 16 1/2" long by 8 1/2" wide. The barrel measures 6" x5"in diameter. The dog is 6" long by 5" tall. We date the piece circa 1890-1900.
