With the “Young Animals” collector’s series, MEISSEN presents fifteen miniatures produced in rich detail that purposefully depart from the manufactory’s seasoned tradition of naturalistic animal depictions. The animal figures are imbued with a stylized diminutiveness, painted by hand in subtle palettes of pastel tones. Characteristic traits of the monkey, hare, cat, and dog are emphasized with fine strokes of the brush, applied with a restrained hand to allow the shimmer and brilliant lustre of the Meissen porcelain to play a part in the design. The colours and shapes work together to guide the attention to the large, particularly expressive eyes of each animal, which communicate the soft, childlike character of this unique collector’s series.
