Porcellan figure
Figure of the equipment of the Leipzig NEW “Porzellan-Palais”,
which was opened in spring 1921.
It was a group of 16 large-scale porcelain animals and birds designed in 1921
by Arthur Storch (1870-1947) and Hugo Meissel (1887-1966).
in the tradition of Meissen and Kändler.
Hellhound Design: Arthur Storch 1921
Execution: The oldest Volkstedt porcelain factory
Dimensions: height about 60 cm
Condition: according to age very good – Areas of restoration to firing cracks and perhaps breaks. (The firing of such large pieces was a huge technical challenge even after 200 years of the creation of the Meissen animals.)
