A rare & unique antique comic novelty pottery Jester Bitters Dropper curio 19thC
A rare & unique antique comic novelty pottery Jester Bitters Dropper curio 19thC. An extremely rare and probably unique novelty & amusing pottery figure of a medieval court jester holding a bottle and goblet in mottled polychrome colours. By tipping the figure forward his long curved tongue comes out and by tipping it back again it goes back in. We are dating this 19th century but it could be the 18th century?

Good Antique Condition with just a little bit of colour loss on the tongue as expected. 4.25 inches (11cm) width approx.

It has been suggested:'He's a bitters dispenser. He was filled with bitters through the hole at his bottom, a finger is then placed on the hole, a tilt brought the bitters to the head, and gentle shaking allowed the bitters to drip down his extended curved tongue into the drink', (please note the figure is holding a bottle so certainly a plausible idea). Certainly as he has suggested it is some sort of executive antique toy. The piece is certainly extremely unusual and probably unique.
