Description
Figurine(s) - Plaster - 19th century
Germany

Extraordinarily detailed depiction of the Munich Kindl.
It is holding a beer stein flowing over with foam and a red rose in its right arm. In its left arm it is holding the famous beer radish. It is standing on a square pedestal that bears a carved inscription on the front. It reads: Vivat crescat floreat Monachia and is framed by a floral pattern. The two front corners of the pedestal are designed like beer steins, on which you can see the capital letters ‘HB’. They probably stand for Hofbräu. On the back you can find another inscription scratched in. It reads: Original Modell geschützt. The figure is from my grandmother's estate.
