This lovely piece is an adaptation on a rustic pepper mill I once found in France. It had the same shape and feet, but was just a pepper mill. This one plays For hes a jolly good fellow. The pepper mill part on top is closed off with a faun who plays a flute and the pepper comes out of the mouth of a gargoyle type figure. The body of the mill is porcelain, possibly Capo di Monte judging by the design of putti and a woman. The feet are small pig heads. The pepper mill is in very good condition. The music box works and sounds good. Measurements are: 4 diameter and 11 ½ tall. The item “Antique French Peppermill with Reuge Music Box” is in sale since Friday, March 31, 2017.
