This is an astonishingly beautiful Tankard that has some of the most vibrant and striking painting I've ever seen on a Tankard this size.

The artist has signed - J.R. MAckey - and painted deep purple Blackberries with their fat leaves all around the Tankard. Intermingled with the Berries and their white flowers, are wild pink Roses tumbling happily around and amongst the fruit branches. Wild Roses and wild Berries grow together in profusion in nature and are one of the prettiest sights to see. That is why you see Wild Roses so often painted with Blackberries. The Blackberries & their flowers and the pink Wild Roses cover almost the whole surface of the Tankard. The colors are extremely deep and strong with excellent background color contrast. The rim and handle are painted in glowing Gold.

The Tankard stands 7" tall, 6" across it's widest width including the handle and has a circumference of 12 1/4".

It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or hairlines. The colors are very rich and strong and the gold is excellent. The China Painting is vibrant and strong. This is a real beauty.

No Maker's Marks, but this is a Bavarian mold. Early 1900's. PLEASE WAIT TO HEAR FROM ME BEFORE PAYING AS THE SHIPPING TOTAL IS JUST AN ESTIMATE.
