Bisque Porcelain Shafer Vater Alice in Wonderland Four Piece Tea Set. Here we have a rather rare tea set by the German firm of Shafer Vater made in the early part of the 20th c. The exaggerated, whimsical features of the faces makes one to think of the fairy tale Alice in Wonderland. It has been suggested by some that this design is a subtle anti-suffragette reference in that the women are made to look silly and a bit foolish.
Also, the colors of green and violet, along with white, make homage to the colors of this movement (green = Give, white = Women, violet = Votes). A hard to find set in very good condition for your tea table or SV collection!
